Tecumseh 21" mower

Well, the saga continues... I got the mower up and running and I even mowed most of the back yard with it. Like I said... most of the back yard. After a while it just quit. I cranked it again and it ran for about 5 seconds then quit. This is the most I can get out of the mower now. Well, I replaced the mulching blade (which was wobbly) with a Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) blade. I used a torque wrench so I know it is tight and no wobble. Still does the same... about 5 seconds of use. Any recommendations? Well anything other than an Armor Piecing Bullet... which I have thought about.

you have a fuel problem. could be water in the fuel. - drain and add fresh to the tank. could be a fuel delivery problem - plugged line or screen. but most likely a carb problem - remove carb, disassemble, blow out,set float, put it back together and try. get a techumseh manual. good luck.
