Customer Question

Have a Ferris 1000Z with 23hp Kawasaki engine. It has 500 hrs on it. A couple of years back it began to stall out after running for 20-30 minutes. It would restart but immediately stall out again. I took it to a Ferris dealer who
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: tuned it up for about $250. It did not fix the problem. Last year I took it to a different Ferris dealer who removed and cleaned both fuel tanks and replaced the llines running from the tanks to the carb. Now (this spring) it has begun doing the same thing all over again. if you let it sit for 30 or 40 minutes after stalling it will start and then run for another 30 minutes and start to stall again. Any ideas?
