Customer Question

I have a e series 450e on my lawnmower that ran rough and began to almost stall in the course of 1/2 hour mowing job. Then it quit. if I push the choke button 3 times the engine will start but immediately sputters and dies. I suspect a blockage in the gas line, but the gas line looks ok and does not leak. Any suggestions?
