Customer Question

I have an old JD 325 lawn mower - 17hp. 625 hours
Yesterday it was running fine and then died on me in the middle of the yard. It would not start back up until it cooled down but then it died again within 4 minutes.
This morning it started up but after a few minutes died again.
Anything come to mind from your end?

Sounds like you have a coil issue once it warms up. Could also be a loose wire someplace, or a safety switch is going bad.
