If it is sitting on slope now dead. Try pulling the fuel line to the carb and turn it over and see if you are getting fuel.

Is there a seat safety switch?  My 116's have theirs disconnected for this very reason.  Fine on flat ground but when mowing the ditches, they want to cut out and die.

 

Just a thought.

Is there enough fuel in the tank so the tank outlet is not uncovered while on a slope? 

 

Is the tank outlet below the carb inlet while on a slope?

Alec if this is on your b212 it wouldn't have a safety switch from factory except the one on the gear shift lever when you start it.

I.D.K.   At this point you may have something as simple as wiring corrosion that is aggravated by frame twisting  etc . I could not find reference to back up sense however loss of ignition could still occur with harness problems .

 

 The Elec-Traks can go really high current with loss of field current .  WD 40 on the connectors may help along with reseating all connectors .

Alec main concern is that you are getting fuel to carb and if you are then its probably your float level. Of you're not getting fuel to the carb then check the line and gas tank filter on the fuel shut off valve.

Outdoor Power Info .com has the common uses of the low oil switches and the specs for tilt angles ( no more than 30 degrees when specified )

 

They protected emergency generators from mudslides etc . They would also protect operators from steep terrain useage . They also need cleaned with time .  Two wires coming from flange in block near oil plug or fill .

so I pulled the gas line pff the carb and I may have seen a few water bubbles ( not sure ) the carb is lower than the tank but the line does sag a little below the level of the carb ( could water settle there and come out when its getting bounced around ? )next I pulled the jet assembly and let the gas drain out . choked it and it fired right up and seems to be working fine . checked the oil when I got it level . it was perfect ( and clean too ) put an elbow on the exhaust that was blowing straight at the ground so now it doesent blow a huge dirt cloud right in front of the machine or burn the grass :flamethrower:  hahaha ! THANKS GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP !!!
