Ok I have an old 8 hp rear tine Montgomery Wards Perfectionist tiller that has given me great service up until the tank rusted on me. I removed that tank and grabbed a plastic one off of and old riding mower. Never could get it to run right with that tank on there. Cleaned out the carb multiple times but still no go. It would run 5-10 minutes and then crap out on me. I finally said screw it and bought a new tank just like what came on it new and a new carb.
I've got it to where it will crank and run like a top for about 5-10 minutes again and then it dies. the in line fuel filter looks like it's running out of fuel. It gets about 1/2 full of fuel when it dies.
Anyone got any ideas?
I got the biggest fuel filter I could get thinking it would give me more flow.
Is filter placement an issue? it's right before the carb.
Am I off track and it's something else completely?
I usually don't have issue with these little engines but this one has me ready to give up gardening!!
