Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Have you tried pumping the primer bulb over and over to see if it would stay running? Does the primer bulb ever collapse and suck flat, without re-inflating?

H​I Dave. Are you able to check fuel pressure and see if the engine has fuel pressure when the engine stalls out?
