Make sure mice haven't plugged the cooling passages..  Read the plug..  If it's white I'd replace the fuel line (could be collapsing) and check the cap vent..  Just a few ideas

I've had the cap off and it still did it. Head fins are not enclosed in tin, they are clean. I had forgotten about the infrared thermometer i bought a while back. I can use it to see where most of the heat is.

I took the thermometer out and got some pics. First pic is how it was ran before. Right next to that black holder in the middle, I got 170° after about 15 minutes and the air bubble in the filter was growing.

There is another hole the holder would bolt to, so I moved it there and got some clearance from the head fins.

I'll see what this does and report back.

Can you take that black connector off & let the fuel line hang. It looks like it's coated but being metal maybe it's still disapating some heat in the fuel line.

Moving it over helped. Highest temp I got this time was 120°. Now I'm thinking maybe the filter isn't letting enough fuel through. I can take it out and put in a connector, but that would drop the ID down to 1/8". Guess I can try it. I'm not even sure the unit came with a filter as it has the worm drive clamps on it. I have not found a manual for this with a Subaru engine on it. Only Honda.

Success! I checked the ID of the hose connector and it's 3/16". Put it in place of the filter and it ran for 30 minutes without a hickup. :dancingbanana:

I'm going to see if Atwoods has a Kohler filter for a twin cylinder, that should let enough fuel through for this thing.

Yeah! Would be nice if I had them on hand. The one I put on there was similar, just didn't let enough fuel through for this engine. And I bought a larger one than what was on it before!

I tried another filter like the ones in Sawdust's post and it sucked it dry too. I can't find any filters for the larger engines as yet. May have to go to the mower shop to get one.
