Check and see if there is a shear or safety pin in one of the drive pulleys that has broken.See if there is a pulley that turns by hand when this happens. Could be one has broken but grabs for a little bit. Also check the drive belt and see if it is slipping Check all the drive areas . BE SAFE BY TAKING THE KEY OUT AND TRYING BY HAND>

SOURCE: 2305 tractor keeps stalling out

Hello eireannachcr:

>>Check All the Fuel Connections and Make Sure they are Tight.
>>From Your Description it Sounds like a Loose Fitting or a Bad Compression Washer.
>>A Bad Compression Washer or Loose Fitting will Allow the Fuel to Drain Backwards (sometimes it takes setting for a few days for the Fuel to Bleed Back) when the Engine is Not Running. Once the Engine is Started, it Runs Correctly Until the Air Pocket in the Fuel Gets to the Injector Pump and then the Engine Stalls. The Fuel Behind the Pocket Keeps the Pump and Lines Primed so the Engine will Restart without Bleeding Any Air from the Fuel System.
>>You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Engine and Mower at this Site Addy, and Enter the Model Numbers and Click Find. Then Select your Model from the Search Results Area. Then Select the Sectional File. Then Select the Section of the Mower you Wish to View Online. *You can Drag the View Windows for Better Viewing.*
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

It stalls after running fine for 30-45 minutes

Hi James:
Thanks for providing an extremely detailed history.
My first reaction was similar to yours............ sounds like a fuel supply obstruction, but you seem to have covered it extremely well.
There are two other things you may consider checking.
1) When the stalling occurs, shut off the engine and pull the spark plug(s). Check the appearance of the electrode, wet indicates firing (spark) problem, dry indicates fuel delivery problem. While the engine is still hot, reconnect the plug lead, hold the plug against the head, then spin it over and check the spark. You're looking for hot and blue.
2) Exhaust obstruction. Remove the muffler and make sure that there is no carbon buildup or defective baffle that could be causing excessive back pressure.
If you reply as a comment to this post I'll get your feedback.
