Looks like this?
did you see the link on the carb?
Here it is!
i think it will work, but we could address the engine dying. When engine dies, does it restart immediately or does it have to sit and cool? Does it have spark when it quits?
Possible, but sticking float usually does not come back unless carburetor is tapped on. To check spark, take a spare spark plug and as soon as it quits, remove spark plug wire and attach the spare spark plug , and with it grounded, see if there is spark. If no spark, locate the ignition coil and remove the kill wire, and test again. If no spark with kill wire removed, the coil is failing. If it does have spark, the kill circuit is killing the spark, maybe a oil pressure shutdown!
I would do some testing before replacing carb!
spark plug wire is coming directly out of it!
and kill wire is the only wire on the coil, other than the spark plug wire cable.
you just lay it so it is touching metal to metal, on the threaded end. Or use a wire with alligator clips as ground to the thread on the plug .
No, not without checking it for spark.
First we need to test with spark plug grounded , when it quits! If it has spark, it will be fuel problem. Only if you find no spark, would you want to go any further. As for the oil pressure shutoff, it can be a bad oil pressure switch.
Yes, there should be a link in your email to get back.
