Customer Question

I have a john Deere 777 zero turn it seems to run fine but the exhaust seems very hot, I use premium non oxygenated gas which I was told was the best to use in this type of engine.

You are doing everything right.
Usually if an engine is running hot, it is caused by debris that has accumulated under the engine cover. If that is not it, then it can also be caused by the carburetor running lean....not getting enough gas.
It also may be that everything is ok, it may just deem to run hot and really it may be running correctly.
