Bogging down after a few laps
I just purchased a JD 170 in great shape and have already washed, clayed, polished and waxed it. It is a beautiful tractor. I am having an issue keeping it running. It works great for the first few rounds of my lawn, but soon it bogs down and I cannot engage the PTO again without it bogging down. He lives in my neighborhood, so I got my wife to drop me off and I drove it home, about 1/4 mile or so. When I started cutting grass though it bogged down. The guy that sold it to me replaced the fuel cutoff solenoid (M122917). After that is started, but it still bogs down. It will run rough with the choke on. Any ideas on what to do??? The guy at Trigreen thought it might be the coil... I want to cut some grass.
