    I have a toro zmaster 48 inch cut 21 horse kaw motor, it has about 90 hours on it. I am having problems with it shutting of from time to time. Then i have difficulty starting it back up. Anyone out there ever have a problem like this. Thanks for your feedback. Dealer looke it over and couldn't find anything.

    yeah its because of a broken or shorted wire that isnt totally broken. when replacing the engine on many different types of vehicles i run into this and it alwasy seems to be a bad wire. very easy way to tell, find your harness, follow all the wires and replce them all if it fixes the problem you win if it doesnt you lose game over ! lol have fun!

    The dealer wired me up a harness that overides the safetly switches and last time it shut off i used it and it fired right up so i think its in one of my safety switches that is going bad.

    I would check the connections first, maybe even pull them and clean them up,
    just to be sure it's not a piece of dirt getting in the way.
