Default Tank L60 With Kohler CV740 Stalls Going Downhill

I am the proud owner of a CC Tank, built in 2011. I have had no problems with this machine until recently. It has started to stall when on an incline, both going down hills, and across them with the left side on the uphill slope.
Thinking this was a weak fuel pump, I replaced it with a new OEM pump, and replaced the filter. This helped a bit, but the thing just quits as described above. It will restart when its orientation is changed.

I hope someone has seen this weird problem, and can help me solve it.

Have seen this problem many times on other machines. Sounds like it
is time the clean the fuel system. I would start with the tank and inspect
and make spotless everything from there all the way to the intake. I would
bet that resolves it.

Default Eureka!

Thanks for the advice; I switched fuel pumps and installed a new fuel filter. That helped a bit...but for reasons other than fuel flow.
After doing the fuel pump, etc. I caught the motor back-firing when it stalled on a hill side. I immediately thought, "electrical problem."
I inspected the battery connections. Looked good. Next time I tried to start the engine, nothing. Nary a click. I checked all the safety switches for continuity...AOK. Hmmm...
I took the battery connectors off the battery to find that, when my service guy replaced the battery, he used the original split lock washer with no flat washer. The lock washer was compressed inside the negative lead through-hole. This allowed the lead to rotate, and made the battery and negative lead a perfect position switch: move the battery an eighth of an inch, and it became a high resistance connection.
Reinstalled the battery with the correct hardware, and the problem was resolved. Tank and I are happily running the hills again.
I thought I would let you know about this weird problem, and its solution.

That is indeed a interesting fix to the problems you described. Good news
though, I'm glad your back on the road. Thanks for checking back in, I was
wondering how you made out.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
