Riding mower stops periodically

(From: Mike Odryna (modryna@ix.netcom.com).)

You might want to check the oil level. Some of the Briggs & Stratton engines have a low oil pressure cut off. Some of these cutoffs are very sensitive. They will stop the engine when it's less than a cup low on oil. As far as I know, you can't adjust it either.
