Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Single cylinder, air cooled Kawasaki. What makes you think it is over heating? The fins on the head and block have to be clean, but other than that, should be no overheat problems. Does engine die or just loose power? It has a pulse type fuel pump that can get weak, but it is not subject to overheat.
