Hey to all, just joined

Got a problem, my737 will cut fine for a while then stall as if no gas then go back to cutting been troubleshooting this is what I have done so far
1. cleaned carb, installed a rebuild kit, didn't do the jets but cleaned every orifice that I saw, everything looked ok
2. cleaned battery post, then later installed new battery, charging system checked out ok by 2 different testing methods, battery light was blinking on and off(hopefully that issue is solved)
3.changed out fuel pump, even installed screw clamps on vacuum lines to help with vacuum, that seemed to help pumping a little.
4 changed out fuel filter
5 inspected fuel line in tank seems to be ok as far as I can tell. As far a fuel goes we only use gas out of a non ethanol pump

There is a fuel shut off solenoid located below the carb, could it be send false signals and shutting off fuel after the mower starts getting hot? part cost about $140 so not want just to part swap
Possible hole in fuel tube in tank sucking air? next time cutting if mower acts up told her fill up to see if that is possible solution
Could bad\weak battery be the cause of all problems, haven't cut grass since installing new battery?

My wife the grass cutter is getting mad because the mower is acting up, we cut 5+/- acres takes about 3:15Hrs to cut last time it took 5+ hrs. because of mower shutting off

Any ideas?

Welcome to GTT capehorn24.
I assume after is stalls it starts right back up without waiting for it to cool down?

Thanks for the reply's

It sputters then catches up and sometimes it shuts off, seat safety switch haven't thought of that one the other day as I was working on it wife was wondering it seat switch could be source of problem, The shutting down of the mower is just like getting off of the set while all is running

Yes it will start right back up

My buddy had this on his JD zero. It was his battery. Mow, and let us know if it works since you changed the battery.

It was the seat safety switch, wiring good, switch good just wasn't making consistent contact, after removing the switch, forced the limit and mower worked better than ever. I guess all the other work did help.

Thanks for the input
