    I've got a JD 160, had it for 20 years - still runs great, but this year it started dying at low idle speed and then would not start again until it had "cooled" off for about two hours. I have replaced fuel filter, spark plug, took off the carburator - cleaned, blew out with air, no parts replaced, and it will crank right up when cold and as long as I don't shut it off will run a full tank of gas. But when I shut it off, it appears to flood and thus wont start again for about 2 hours. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
