Hopefully someone smarter than me can help with my Simplicity 7015S tractor. Best I can figure it's a 1972.
It has a 15hp single cylinder Briggs with a one piece Flo-Jet carb. I just recently put new gaskets in the carb, and cleaned it out.
What's happening is... It'll run for a 1/2 hour or so, then just die. Also, whenever the throttle goes past 1/2 way, the engine dies out. It seems to me that the high speed part if the carb isn't working properly. I have tried adjusting the screws, but to no avail.
I am wondering if I'm going about this the wrong way. While I understand the Flo-Jets can be a bear to tune, is there somewhere else I should be looking? I am wondering if the points could be the problem.
Gas is fresh, spark plug is new (and has plenty of spark).
Any help is appreciated... :)
