Customer Question

I have 10000 watt generator with a B&S twin-v engine. it will start right away but after 12-15 minutes. it stops like some flip the switch.
1) cleaned the carb twice (in seafoam and carb cleaner)
2) new gaskets from carb to engine
3) new gas lines and filter
4) new plugs and gas
5) cleaned the tank (but it still did it on a rigged tank I know is clean)
6) I even disconnected the oil pressure switch.

You stated that your engine will stop after you run it for 12-15 minutes. How do you have to wait before your engine will re-start?

Does your carburetor have a fuel shut-off solenoid, or does it have a plug? We can continue from here. Thanks!
