My 71 MF12H wont run for more than 2 minutes at a time. Then it stops, but can be started right back up right away! Whats going on?

Alex, are you running the stock SSI unit on that one? Remember, that is the same sort of problem I had with mine way back when. The spark fade can drive your nuts. Also, try running with the gas cap off, it "could" have a clogged vent hole.

Oh, now I see what you meant by deja vuo on the othet forum, you posted here too. I'm gonna try the gas cap first and see where that leads.
