My guess would be something with the fuel. Pinched line? no fuel going into the carb? But, you get what you pay for.

it's the coil.....

there NOT using points anymore.... there is a modgule that takes it's place it's in the coil.....

once this issue starts it will never end....

check to see that your flywheel is giving you proper cooling.... if there is 1 chip it will ruin the coil.....

you can also..."for testing purposes" use the machine, stop it ..... take a blower to it for a while and it WILL start up again....

I had this issue on several machines.....
Dont even talk to people who cant purchase your product or service.........Dave Thomas.
