    Default Tractor question

    Have 15hp Tecumseh. Fired it for the 1st time and hauled a small trailer for a neighbor no prob.
    Fired it again to do lawn, ran fine for about 10 min and runs out of gas. You can keep it going
    by playin with choke. Come back 15min later and she starts runs 10min and die's again. Added START. Took
    me all day to get the lawn done. Checked fuel tank, line to filter. GOOD. Installed new filter. Fuel line to bowl.
    Good. Bowl clean, gasket good, float working, tube to carb is clean. Runs 10 min quits. Let sit...repeat. Spent
    more time workin on it then riding it as recharging the battery became an issue too.

    Check the feul tank lid, sounds like the vent is clogged.
    most of the time when a small engine runs a bit then dies, it is the mag getting hot, but you said it runs out of gas and playing with the choke "helps"...the choke would not help an electrical issue.

    It acts like a boat motor when ya forget to open the vent. Kept thinkin I had something in the system that was moving and getting sucked up N cuttin off fuel supply.

    Mine makes mowing easy...it doesn't cut grass worth a poot, but will sure cut a rut.
    turn the 17 y/o loose on it and tell him to make donuts like he is feeding the CHhicago Po-Po, you wont have grass to mow for a month

    I had good info, lol!
    Alot of times people ask questions Like;" Why won't my mower run"
    To which I answer; "Maybe it has a broken leg?"

    or they say ; "It's running out of gas"
    So I say; "Fill it back uo before it runs out?"

    Small engines are pretty simple creatures, IF given good information they are not hard to diagnose!
