    Anyone who can help. I operate a John Deere 997 Diesel. The mower randomly stalls out. Doesn't matter if you are cutting or cursing on the street. The engine will randomly lose power and stall out. It also will discharge black smoke when it stalls. We replaced the fuel filter and checked all the fuel lines for any problems. IF anyone can give me any suggestions on what might be happening let me know. Thanks in advance. Evan

    If anyone else runs across this problems there is a screen inside the fuel tank attached to the fuel line that was blocked. Cleaned and ran for 7 hours with no problems.
