John, thanks for the reply. I just got done messing with the low oil sending unit , the oil level was fine. tried taking the unit out of the motor, wiped it clean and reinstalled. the dang motor is running almost half hour, probem must have been a contact. gas and oil were new less than 6 months ago. hope this helps someone else.
