    Hi. I have a self propelled lawn boy model 10545 and i just replaced the primer bulb on it. It runs great until you get on a hill or even the slightesr incline and stalls out instantly. If you leave it on level ground itll run forever. Whats going on? I dont wanna lose this mower lol. Thanks in Advance!!

    Could be a float or fuel delivery problem. I have also seen this happen with gas that has water in it. Have you tried fresh fuel?

    ^^^^ Agree with @Walker56.

    Likely fuel related.

    Reading the title of this post I thought some poor kid flipped a ZTR over on a hill and got killed.
