Do you have electric solenoid in the base of the carburetor? Remove it, and plug the hole and run test to see if engine dies. Does not sound like PC board! Look at the board, it will have two LED's, both should stay on.

there is no electric solenoid on the carburetor this is a 1998 tractor with the Kawasaki two cylinder. I drained the bowl, quite a bit of gunk came out. I then ran the tractor for 1 hour before it died. we are now pulling the carb and doing a complete cleaning.

OK, later model shows to have solenoid, but cleaning the carburetor is the right move. Thanks for the reply.
