Hey! I have a Simplicity 7100 series tractor with a 14hp Kohler engine. I re-built the carb and fired right up! But, one day I was working her and I was driving, running fine and it just died. And its been doing it for a while now and I have no idea whats wrong. Its been left outside its whole life. I think its the electricals, what do you guys think? Thanks, Ian!

Welcome to GTT. You are going to have to do some troubleshooting. Next time it dies, check for gas to the carb and check for spark at the plug. Good Luck. Rick
