Customer Question

Curtis
No luck yet---here's what we have done reworked the carb , replaced fuel pump , replaced the mag coils , and some other minor stuff. In any event it still dies out after running for 5 to 10 minutes . Under load it dies even sooner . If you apply the choke when it starts to die it will run a bit longer . To restart requires a ait period of a few minutes . We did not replace the carb float ????

Everything I see relates to lack of fuel, Have you ran the test line from the fule pump inlet, back into the fuel tank filler opening and ran , bypassing the tank outlet and hose to the fuel pump.?//
