A neighbor brought over his newer Sears Gt Has an issue of starving for gas when it warms up. This has the 25 HP B&S (445777) V-Twin. We will get into it this weekend. Just wondering if anyone has info on these engines about this issue?
He has put on a new fuel filter and cleaned the flywheel of rust. Said he reset the 'coil' gap after cleaning. May need to recheck that. It does have a vacuum fuel pump, wonder if it is getting weak and failing when it warms up?
Of course, we will check that the cooling fins are cleaned out.
He has had the fuel shut-off solenoid checked and it was okay. Drained the carb, but no change in the situation. Still 'starves' (has to choke to keep running, than dies and won't restart until it cools). Once cooled down, it runs fine. May be the coils overheating and breaking down when warm?
Just trying to get ideas of what all to check. May need to mow a bit with it and see if it does it so we can check fuel and spark at that time.
