I have a John Deere 455 Lawn Tractor, Diesel, Yanmar 3 cylinder engine, that starts and then dies after running for a while, if I let it sit for a while it starts back up and runs and then dies again. I think something is causing it to get air locked, but I don"t know what is causing it, any ideas?

Sounds like part of the OPS is the problem. Try unplugging the switch under the seat, then plug a jumper into the end of the harness where the switch was. If the seat switch is bad, this will solve your problem. Of course, you should next buy a replacement switch as this creates a safety issue.

does it die or is it being killed?
if you can drive it around fine but it dies when you turn on the pto it is the brake switch, not the seat switch. if it is being killed(lugging down till it dies) it may be the pto or the deck gear box. check these: brake switch adjustment, rio (reverse impliment opperation) switch adjustment, and pto switch. one of these may be the problem
