2000 wright stander wants to stall when ebgaging pto.

Mower seemed a bit sluggish so I changed as filter and spark plugs. Dealer gave me champion instead of NGk. Mower started right up and ran well. I let a buddy borrow it to cut a a lot he owns and one I one, just grass but maybe a foot tall. He calls me and said that it wants to stall after engaging the pto. The filter show gas running threw it. Any ideas?

liledgy,

Have the RPM's checked, should be at least 3600 +/- 50rpm at full throttle without the deck engaged, also make sure that the governor is responding and increasing RPM's when the cutter deck is engaged. If the engine checks out it is possible you have a spindle or two binding bad enough that the deck cannot get up to speed, remove the deck belts and spin the spindle assemblies by hand to check how freely they are moving. If all checks out make sure it wasn't being engaged when the mower was in the foot tall grass.

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

Thank you for the quick reply! It was so obvious what he (didn't) did. After cutting for over an hour he must of shifted his weight off the spring loaded platform to the pipe support behind it. I had no trouble with it after he brought it home. He had used it before so I thought it was a non issue. I thought it was the new plugs I put in or possibly the new fuel filter.
