Customer Question

Have a 2007 Dixie Chopper with Yanmar 1.6 dsl engine. It runs great for about 30-35 minutes then shuts off as if turning off switch. Once you disengage everything, it will start right back up, but will only run for 3-4 minutes before shutting off again. Changed fuel filter and drained fuel bowl. Checked connections on fuel pump, it is working and not overly hot.

Is the fuel shutoff solenid just to the left of the injection pump body? Sounds like the fuel solenoid is getting hot and shutting off the fuel. When it closes, it pushes the fuel link and engine dies, when you restart it resets, but is hot and won't stay locked. You can remove it and cover the hole with tape and run test. .
