Just bought a 6x4 gator and need some help. I cant find the year on it or what engine on it. Bought it from a woman whos husband passed away and she didnt know much about it. serial # w006x4x037484. It seems to run fine but it wont idle every time ok most times it wont but if I stay on the gas it runs fine. I want to get it running and all fixed up so I can make my life easier on the farm but just need a little help to start. I would rather not got to the local dealership because they are way over priced for everything they sell.
Thanks for any help anybody can offer

Sorry I can't help with the year of your gator, but it just amazes me that everyone feels the same way about their local John Deere dealer. We love their stuff but it is just way to expensive. Everyone in my home town avoids the place as much as possible.

Lincoln, That is a 1999 model yr 6x4, Engine is a kawasaki FD620D model, ser #177731, As far as the ideling problem it probably has some plugged idle passages in carb,Make sure fuel is fresh(none ethenal) and put some carb cleaner inthe fuel and run it to see if gets better. If not then carb will have to come off and cleaned. Hope this helps! :)

I cleaned out the carb completly by taking it off taking it apart soaking all the parts and put it back on. Put fresh fuel in and now i can get it set to idle but soon as i drive it the idle goes back up and either tries to stall or does stall. Any ideas?

sounds like your governer linkage is sticking or not adjusted correctly, Check to make sure the springs are in place and not stretched.
