coil replaced gas line rerouted and still vapor locks after 10 - 15 min of operating at full throttle . i am going to run steel line around the cool side of the engine and try to shield it from radiant heat may even try putting a fan on it to keep heat buildup to a minimum and draw more air through the hood and see if that helps. might try a shield between the block and carb to, better more shields than no shields ,oh sorry i got that backwards :smilewink:  :wallbanging:

the vapor lock problem is solved , there was a mud dauber nest in the bowl vent and being a big guy  i couldn't bend over that far so the carb shield was blocking the view of the vent , i cleaned the crap out out the hole and mowed without interuption for a hour plus now i just need to tighten up the throttle control so i can keep it at full throttle and not back off . the EK is one of the best mowers i have ever used it mows with professional results in all conditions and i can't say enough about the unit . i can say that i see why bolens isn't around anymore because in this day and age you can't sell a mower designed to last 40/50years and sell enough to stay in business . so i hope to be using the EK for many years to come as i may never find as good a machine again. :rolling:  :wave:  :worshippy1: EK forever
