Ok so i picked it up from a guy who used it around his 1 acre property since he bought it new in 2000. Meticulous records were kept all the way down to oil changes that he provided me with. I noticed the CVT filter had some fray from the CVT belt so i put a new belt on and new CVT filter. Also put new fuel filter and regular air filter on. When i tested it out i didnt really get on to it but i didnt really have any power issues. Took it to the lease the last weekend and starts fine idles fine and run fines however once i get to roughly 13 mph it can not or will not go any faster and it starts makeing almost like a air blow out sound coming from the mufflar from time to time when i am floored. Also my brother has the same exact mule and i used his for a bit this season and i could tool around my place all day on sat and sun and burn maybe a quarter tank of diesel. On mine i hunted hard so was only used for to and from stand each day and checking feeders and burned almost half a tank of fiesel. I am pretty sure it is a fuel related issue almost sounds starved however it used alot so i dont know. I ordered the service manual and it should be in before the end of the week just hoping someone has seen or experienced an issue like this.

Did you change the fuel filter?

Is the engine reaching full rpms? and how bad was the air filter when you changed it? Did you check the engine oil?

belt had about 550 hours on it no terribly bad but i didnt want to chance it snapping while on the other side of the lease or something. Good enough where i kept it in my tool box as an emergency back up to get it on a trailer or something of that sort. Air filter DIRTY. Fuel filter i did change and bleed all the lines. Line 2 &3 bleed quickly but line one was strange had to bleed the crap out of it in order to get the fuel in. Thinking i may have a pinhole in that line sucking in air. Engine is reaching full rpms runs great until i hit that speed then just hits an acceleration wall. ALmost like i have it in low but it is in high.

I would start with replacing that line and double checking the part number for the belt when you get the book.

If your still at a wall there this is a worry... with the air filter being that bad theres no tellin how long he ran it like that.. and if it was starving for fuel or air you wouldn't be reaching full RPMs that's a main symptom of a fuel problem along with smoke. So... running with the air filter being that dirty and you have two lines bleeding well but one that's not im worried that your engine got dusted and you got a dead cylinder...

Sure it wasn't the oil filter you changed instead of a cvt filter?

As long as the parts are available and there is not to much damage you could just replace the rings and pistons and really depends on how much damage has occurred inside... really depends on how much its worth to you at that point. Id get a mechanic to assure you that's what it actually is and asset the damage and price from there.

There is still a possibility its something as simple as a line or whatnot. Hope it turns out for the best

Did you check the screen in the exhaust? On my Kubota it is between the tail pipe and muffler.
