Expert:  JON replied 2 months ago.

Once machine dies, will it start right back up or do you have to wait a time period?

Does this engine have a fuel pump on it?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The engine will crank right back up and die again I really don't know if it has a fuel pump it seems like it would seems to have plenty of fuel going to carb
Expert:  JON replied 2 months ago.

how were coil gapped ? What were they set at? If it is dying but will start right back up. it is either losing fuel or spark. if you can have someone spray fuel into carb as it is running and see if it runs longer than normal to eliminate no fuel being the issue

What should the gap on the coils be
Expert:  JON replied 2 months ago.

YES TOMORROW WILL BE FINE. USE A BUSINESS CARD TO GAP THE COIL. PLACE CARD BETWEEN THE COIL AND THE MAGNET, AND LET MAGNET PULL COIL TO FLYWHEEL. GAP SHOULD BE 0.010 OR ABOUT A BUSINESS CARD THICKNESS.
