I don't know. When it quits it's as though the fuel is cut off. I can crank & crank but it won't restart unless I let it sit for an hour or more. Then it fires right up, but only runs for 15 or so and then quits again.

Slip the fuel solenoid back, and tape up the hole and run with it out of the system , to test.
