Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: to elminate the fuel supply as the problem try rigging a hose from the fuel pump to a jug and keep it away from the engine and let it run. If no problems then it must be from the pump to the tank. Also have you tried a different fuel pump? Good Luck!!! Russ

After it shuts down how long till it will re start? When engine stops look down the carb and punp the accl by hand and see if any gas squarts down the throte. You shoud see gas each stroke till the bowl runs dry. If no gas at all then their is a problem with the fuel delivery system. No gas then with a friend dissconnect the fuel line at the carb and crank engine and see if any gas comes out. (be careful) Plenty of gas puts problem in carb. Even new carbs don't always have the float adjustment correct. I also assume you have not left the choke on. It is possible you have a week or about to go pump. Bill
