    as you all know, i got my encore working. now i have a new problem. when cutting with it when you go to turn left, the motor cuts out and tries to die on me. it only does it when the blades are engaged and only when turning left. i assume its some safety switch or something engaging pre-maturely but i'm not certain. any ideas would be appreciated. by the way its a 32" encore proline with a 12hp briggs with electric start... thanks

    Sounds to me like you have a wire that is getting pinched in the steering linkage. Check all steering linkage to be sure that no wires are coming in contact with any linkage. I see this happen on a Scags mower once.
