Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Check the fire on the machine right after it dies. Does it fire right back up, or do you have to wait a few minutes before it will refire? I would also consider that the fuel pump may be stopping.
What is the engine? Twin Kohler? Carburetor or fuel injected?
engine dies from lack of fuel in most cases with twin engine. Do you have fuel at the carburetor inlet when cranking?
did you see my response?
