Customer Question

K301S runs great for about 10-15 min and then dies. No fuel in the filter. Let it set a while and fuel is in the filter and it starts right up and runs another 10-15. On a Gravley 5665 tracor.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Gravity feed from tank to carburetor or is there a pulse fuel pump with three hoses? Is ignition system points and condenser or electronic? When it quits have you taken a spare spark plug, attached it to the spark plug wire and with the plug grounded see, if you have spark? You may have a coil failing, and not a fuel problem. The fuel filter will never shows full when running.
