Hello everyone. I have had an issue with my tractor over the last few days. It loses power intermittently especially when the pto is engaged. It will rev up and down in a dramatic fashion. Today before I began to mow I had trouble starting the 1025r. It finally started but ran terribly. Before starting it I changed the fuel filter due to the fact I think I may have gotten some bad fuel a few weeks back. However the tractor did not run well after a few minutes of just letting it idle and giving it throttle from time to time. I let it set for 20-30 minutes to run. However it began to shake terribly at one point hard enough to break a strap that I think goes around a part of the motor.
Any ideas what in the world could be wrong? I am afraid I am looking at major $$$ in repairs. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
