so today i got the g14 fired up to drag my friends wheel horse out of my mud pit. and yes i have a large mud pit =) i fired it up and no matter what choke or throttle combo i had it at the engine kept surging. then it kinda died off. i had a full tan and it was getting gas. maybe the battery died because it wasnt charging but i had 2 plugs unplugged so i could get spark. both coming from the device at the 3 oclock position on the flywheel shroud. any advice would help. i need this to run right and charge before snowfall.

Can't help on the rest, but the surging sure sounds like water in the bowl.

:ditto:

A weak battery will make the engine run funny as well , but from what your describing it sounds like some sort of fuel issue.

yeah. im thinking i might adjust the carb richer and see how it goes. if that makes it run smoother then its just the charging issue. an electrical problem wouldnt make it run better on choke would it?

Try cleaning the carb before making any adjustments.

Try taking it the carb apart not just running a fuel system cleaner.

gum out is a carb spray which ive had luck with before. the charging problem is the biggie right now because i know the solid states are different then a regular motor.

so i did some very extensive testing on the system. and heres the virdict. it needs a headgasket valves valve spring and a new block. only kidding. when the switch is in the off position and the tractors running. if both plugs are plugged in it stalls. if i pull one it runs fine. but when i pull lets say "plug one" and put the key switch in on position the lights kick on and it charges. but it stalls. this leads me to think key switch. any opinions?

Kind of sounds like it could be the switch, but not really too sure

:ditto:

That would be my guess.I would start there first.Just remember there was two different switches used depending on the serial number you have.
