First off, thanks for access to this wonderful resource for lawncare professionals. Secondly, I have a 72" Dixon (model 8026D) equipped with a 26.5 hp diesel Daihatsu engine. The mower has only 100 hours and yesterday I started experiencing a problem of the engine cutting out and losing power at high rpms. The manual mentions the potential of a clogged fuel filter. My local dealers don't stock the filter so I've had to order. In the meantime, I'm worried to death that this isn't the problem. Does this sound realistic to you professionals? After turning the engine off and restarting it works ok again for a few minutes (until heavy grass). Additionally, the filter is around $40 for a replacement. It is a spin on filter with a water-in-fuel monitor screwed into the bottom. Do any owners of these engines know of a replacement filter that could be used even if it doesn't have the water in fuel switch. I can't get the part till late next week and I really need this mower back in service. Thanks in advance for any input.
