Walker mower

I've got a walker mower model# mtsd Serial # 46235.
The problem is I can drive for about an hour or two and the oil temp light comes on. After it cools off for about 5 or ten minutes crank back up and the light goes off. But will get hot again little later. Does anybody have any idea what this could be. I done the code thing and it reads 61. Somebody told me it probably was oil seal past the fan was probably seeping. Behind the flywheel I meant. Thanks

usually check to make sure cylinder and head fins are clean and clear of grass this is a major cause

Cleaned before and it made it run alright for about 3 or 4 cuts. But it is back to the same.

The oil temp senor is under the starter. The wire from it runs behind the starter. It can get pinched and ground out with the frame and give a false alarm. The cylinder head temp sensor is tied into the same wire so if either one ground out or messes up the alarm will go off. Do you have a real over heat or a false alarm? Now do not just assume it is a false alarm without knowing or you could damage your engine.

I have the same problem with a walker of mine but my light never goes off. Frustrating I cleaned out find near tail wheel and can only trace wire so far due to shrouds around head. Help

Sounds like your wire is pinched behind the starter. Seen it happen a lot when replacing the starter it likes it get in the way.

Check to see it you ran over a plastic bag, and it got sucked around the engine cooling screen

Code 61 is all clear. The temp light is on or the oil pressure light? As mentioned check the basics, is the engine cooling and clean? Wires all free and clear?
