Intermittent Problem

Briggs engine Model 28V707 Type 1113-E1 Mfg Code 020319ZD

So, here is my problem..... the mower starts and runs, but, let's say I mow in 2nd cuts great for about 10 minutes, then it starts sputtering and dies. If I mow in 3rd gear, it cuts for about 20 minutes then sputters and dies. I have already installed a new factory fuel tank, fuel line, fuel filter, air filter, and spark plug. Thoughts? Suggestions? C4?

Are you certain the engine dying is related to the gear? Was your second gear day hotter than the 3rd gear day?

One thing I would try is loosening the gas cap and see if the problem continues. If the fuel cap vent is not working the engine will draw a vacuum in the tank until it dies. Then after is sits and air can slowly seep back into the tank it will start and run again.

If the engine is dying after is gets good and hot. The next time it dies quickly check for spark. If no spark then I'd suspect the coil is failing when it gets really hot.

I agree with Pilot Dane's suggestions.
