    My Dad Has A Ferris I S Mower With A Kohler Motor In It, The Motor Runs Good For About A Half Hour Then It Begins To Cut Out And Backfire Eventually Stalling. It Will Easily Refire If You Pull The Choke Out , But It Will Only Run For A Few Minuetes Until It Does The Same Thing. It Sounds As If The Ignition Is Cutting Out. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Thanks In Advance

    I know this could sound crazy, but it could be the fuel tank cap. Had this similar problem. Worth while checking out. run it until it stops. If you don't see fuel in the filter the tank may not be venting. good luck

    Try cracking open your gas caps when this happens.

    I was ready to type exactly what Gautreaux said.
