    This is an old unit, it starts quickly with choke on then stall a minute later. If any throttle is added it stalls out right away. Checked gas line, all ok. Do you think the carb may need rebuild? Thanks.

    does this 9 hp engine have an electric fuel solinoid? if so check that because it might be stuck and gumed up, it will be mounted on the carb some where if you have one.

    Also it might be something in the wiring harness, or that the fuel solinoid is not geting any power. so check into those things

    good luck man

    PS. the choke on some of the kawasaki engines dont close all the way so you might want to check that its closing all the way

    OK, got it running, this is the old gravity feed venturi tube carb. I pulled off the carb cleaned it out with cleaner, used air pressure thru all openings, drained gas tank of all gas, reinstalled, regased with fresh gas,,,,,,and viola! running again. Thanks for the ideas
