My super z 72 in cut with kawasaki engine surges then

Customer Question

My Hustler super z 72 in cut with kawasaki engine surges then stalls after getting warm. Will run fine for a half hour or so. I can sometimes keep it running by pulling the choke out. i am certain it is a fuel delivery problem. My local small engine mechanic changed the fuel pump and solenoid, and cleaned the carb. Im wondering if it may be some sort of a vapor lock. It has good spark when stalled and will run again after cooling off.

I believe it is approx a 2012 model with about 600 hrs. Will have to do more checking to be more accurate. Also it is liquid cooled.
