I'm guessing the engine starves for gas. Other than that, it was a great investment. Now, if I was going to buy a new aerator, I'd check out a Plugr.
Its not starving for gas, it has a low-oil swith that when on hills the oil leans away form the swith and it shuts off the engine to protect from damage. I have a couple of TA-17 and you can unhook the switch, it is one of the quick connects below the engine ignition switch. I unhooked mine 2 years ago and have not had the dying on hill problem since.
