Customer Question
I have a Cub Cadet...
I have a Cub Cadet Rear Tine tiller. It runs great when it’s cold, but when it warms up it dies. You can start it right back up and it will run for a minute then die again. Let it set for ten or fifteen minutes and then it runs fine for five or ten. I change all the fuel; nothing is clogged in the fuel system that I can see. I’m not thinking its electrical?
