Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • drain / clean tank and replace with fresh fuel;
  • • remove spark plugs;
  • • determine burn color of tips;
  • • and if wet with fuel;
  • • determine if fuel pump is consistently working;
  • • measure battery voltage:
  • - ignition off;
  • - ignition on;
  • - starting;
  • - idling;
  • - revving;
  • - and repeat when "...25 - 30 minutes and then starts loping..."

This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
