Walker Engine Cutting Off

I have a 20 hp gas Walker. This problem has just started. After I run the Walker for about 15 minutes or so, The engine starts acting like it is out of gas. I have to play with the choke, moving it back and forth, just to get it to move a little bit. Then, the engine will die. If I let it sit for a little while, the problem stops till I run for another 15 minutes.

Please Help!

Sounds like the vent is plugged up on the gas tank and drawing a vacuum inside the tank. Check the cap to be sure it is venting OK. Might change the fuel filter also.

IT COULD ALSO BE IN YOUR IGNITION SWITCH, CAUSING YOUR FUEL SOLENOID ON THE CARB TO CLOSE, IF THIS IS THE CASE IF YOU WATCH YOUR VOLTAGE GAUGE IT WILL DROP JUST BEFORE SHUTING DOWN, NOT AN UNCOMMON PROBLEM ON THIS MODEL.

carb was clogged up. Thanks for the replies. Trash must have come from the tank. Why would the fuel filter not catch it though?

Feul filter should have caught it if it came from the tank, does your fuel filter need changed? I am sure the dealer changed it if it did, be sure to clean the donaldson and the kohler filter weekly.
