763 Bobcat: primarily happens when the fuel gauge is at half or lower.

Customer Question

I have a 1999 763 Bobcat that continues to die after about five minutes of operation. This primarily happens when the fuel gauge is at half or lower. When it dies I can prime it and it will run for about five minutes or so and die again. But will start right back up everytime I prime it. Any suggestions.

Hi I'm Wayne,
I will try to help you with this,

It sounds like you have a bad/cracked pick up tube in your fuel tank.
Try running a line direct into your tank, and see if that makes a difference.
