xas 97 jd won't idle. stalls when valves are closed

I go through the the start up procedure with the valves open and it runs and operates, but when i close the valves the machine stalls out almost immediately. Am i doing something wrong, i assume it should still run with the valves closed.

I'm going to go on the premise that the engine throttle is working, trying to go idle, but the load is too much at that speed, and kills it.

If so, then probably your inlet valve is either not closing, or is leaking.

If the premise is right, check that, if wrong, please describe what is happening in more detail.

Let us know.
