Engine kills with key. So you have an electric fuel solenoid. It has to have 12 vols to stay open. Locate it and see f it is killing engine. Solenoid can be bad, or it can be losing voltage. On a Kubota engine, solenoid is just left of the injection pump.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Can be fuel filter or a restriction in fuel supply. What does it have for fuel pump to move the fuel t the injection pump? Electric or manual?
