    Six years old. Cranks great. May run for five minutes, may run hour. Will not restart emmediately. Remove gas line from top of pump, turn over, replace, the engine will restart. NEED HELP.

    Sounds like the gas cap may not be venting correctly. Trying running without the cap, and put a rag over the spout and try. Or, just unscrew the cap a little ways.
