Not Tractor But Need Help

Recommended Posts

RonInNJ
Hello All, I have enjoyed this site for a couple of years but since I don't own a garden tractor I have never posted before. I own a Simplicity Cavalier RER that I bought out of the newspaper. It is not much to look at but it still cuts nice. My problem: When I start cutting it loses power, gets very hot, and then shuts off. It restarts after a minute or two. The engine does have oil. This problem may have resulted from a pin holding the support arm assembly for the mower-deck sheared and the deck dropped to the ground while I was mowing. I say "may" because I replaced the pin and reinstalled the deck and finished cutting my lawn with no problem two weeks ago. When I went to mow last night, I made two turns around the yard and could feel it really warming up then die. I left the mower cool off and tried running it without the mower deck engaged. It did not seem to warm up as much and didn't shut down. Does the belt need adjusting? I have the parts and owners manuals. I would really like to fix this myself. Thanks in advance. Have a nice 4th of July.

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.

      Try this web site for the previous message I reported that did not work for you guys. 
      The message is about a man in Arkansas who builds miniature vehicles out of old refrigerators that are drivable.
