JA: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?
Customer: age about 10Y, Engine starts and runs
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: if necessary, YES the engine, when under load starts backfiring a few times and stalls when restarted runs but after some minutes mowing repeats backfiring and stops
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
