bad motor mount that pinches the fuel line shut when the motor is torqued to the left or right when pulled in gear?

You mean it dies? Turns off suggests the key is truned into the "off" position. If that is what is happening you'd better get an exorcist.:eek: More likely the idle speed is too low. Nuetral safety switch only affects cranking, not running.

1000 RPM at idle should be enough to keep it running in gear. What happens if you put one foot on the brake, put it in gear and give it some throttle?
