The engine starts just fine, runs good, but dies after 10 to 20 seconds. I repaced the carb foat. I measured 3 ounces of fuel from turning engine over about 10 times.
Do you
have the same problem?

HI there,

Will it run if you hold the revs up over 1500RPM?

OK, look at this, get it running again, let it stall, with the air cleaner removed look into the carby and pump the throttle, is there fuel spraying into the carby?

OK, then you have a fuel pump problem, or a sticky needle and seat, undo the fuel line into the carby and place a tube over it, run this into a jar, crank the engine, you should have a good flow of fuel, check this.

I've done this. But I don't know what is a "good flow". I cranked the engine over about 10 times and got 3 ounces of fuel.

Hi there,

You should have a constant pulsating flow, I would say the pump is faulty change that and the filter.

Thank you! One final dumb question. Where is the fuel pump? It's not on the engine or the fuel tank. I guess it is an inline pump somewhere under the chasie.

As I am in Australia I am unsure as to what they have there on your models, can you give me a chassis code it will be some thing lie RN 65 if I have that I should be able to tell you, but I think that they are a mechanical pump driven of the cam at the front of the head, have a look

The fuel line runs from the carb to under the chasie to the fuel tank. I'm positive there is no fuel pump on the engine. My VIN is: RN28033581

I have had a bit on a look on the web, and it looks like it is an in tank electric pump.
