    1440 running issue.

    It will run for great for 5-10 minutes and then sputter and die, it will instantly restart but only idle for a few seconds before it quits. Fuel flows free from the tank and the filter and pump are new. opinions?

    Had the carb apart? Sounds like it may have a piece of crud in the needle valve. Can't fill the carb up fast enough. That or the float is sticking maybe? Sure sounds fuel related.

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

      That's what i was thinking but wanted to hear opinions before i take the carb apart since i cant seem to find parts or gaskets for it.

      14hp vanguard. Adjusting the float solved the problem.

    Good to hear Tim. Good talking with you today, even though the conversation was short. Hope you and the boys (and Mrs) are doing well!
