    3032e shuts down

    Started to cut a fallow pasture with a bush hog a couple of weeks ago. All went well for about half and hour then engine shutdown. It started back up but then the shutdowns happened more and more frequently until I gave up, saved my battery and starter and made it back to the barn. Last Saturday I replaced the fuel, fuel canister filter, and the water separator element. Same scenario occurred.
    Next time I go to go to Dad's farm I plan to replace the fuel valve, what the dealership computer showed as the fuel pump.

    CSR at dealership said we may have to investigate fungus in the fuel tank and lines, but I don't see any evidence of contamination in the water separator.

    Suggestions?

    Before initiating "Maintenance by Replacement" see if you can drain the tank and take a look around inside it. You may be better off just removing it and cleaning it. Did the fuel in your tractor sit in it a long time? I would also start at the injectors and inspect the fuel lines going back to the tank. Your observations indicate some sort of fueling problem. How many hours are on the tractor? I have not read on here of any major fuel pump issues with the 3E series, and anything with the 3E series is something I try and pay attention too since I own a 3025E. Good luck and let us know what it ends up being.

    There are about 372 hours showing.
    I have no confidence in the quality of the fuel that Dad put in this tractor. Could be old, could be contaminated. I assumed that poor fuel would cause loss of power or some derate. But when it runs it runs well. My first attempt at mowing I ran out what fuel I could and drained some more. Could not see anything suspicious looking in through the fill bung. Added new fuel from new 5 gallon jug before my second attempt at mowing.
    Since you follow these these engines, Have you noticed there are several threads for the 3032e with similar symptoms, but none describe an effective remedy?
    I've replied to the threads I found yesterday to see if anyone will come back with more information.

    This is an out there thought, but because you said you were running the rotary cutter, did you check to see if the engine overheated? I also have the 3025e and one time when i let the grass get really tall and the grass had started to flower, when i mowed, the front grill got covered with debris. I cleaned that off several times while mowing, but after i was done I had to go and vacuum out a lot of debris from inside the engine compartment. the radiator had a pretty good amount of junk stuck to it. The air filter was also pretty dirty.

    You probably already looked at this, but just a thought! Good luck!
