JD LX277 Stalling Problem

Steve Martin My LX277 has a problem with stalling during hot weather. The engine acts as if it not getting fuel. I have changed the fuel filter, but that did nothing to help the problem. The engine will run for a while, usually about an hour, and then it will stall. If you let the mower sit for 5-10 minutes it will start again and you can mow some more, but it will continue to stall at shorter and shorter intervals. Late last summer it got so bad you could only mow 5-10 minutes before it would stall. I took the tractor in to a JD Dealer for service and they claimed they could not duplicate the problem, but performed there standard maintenance for several hundred dollars. The tractor has run fine up to now, but has started stalling again now that we are into the hot August weather here in Maryland. Has any body else experienced this problem?

j.white steve, had same problem it drove crazy for 3 weeks, finally removed tank and found a small piece of red plastic wedged in the ell fitting which feeds the gas line going to the engine. this piece of plastic was the same color as my plastic gas cans, apparently it came off the inside seams of the can. when tractor was cold it was ok but when hot apparently it would swell up and block the flow of gas. i removed it and never had this problem again, since i now make sure i have a strainer in the neck of gas can.
