Sounds like your carburetor needs to be cleaned out. The surging is usually a sign of running to lean (not getting enough gas) because of possible water, rust, gum, varnish or trash in your carb. Hope that helps.....

One suggestion wouild be to check the spark right after failure. You can buy in-line spark indicators that give you a visual light if you are getting spark. This way you could see if you are losing spark when the engine warms up. If your spark is good, you would want to check the compression after the engine is warmed up and quits. You should have at least 100# minimum.

Silver series 6.5 hp surging


  1. Carburetor is dirty.
  2. Air leak in carburetor or intake manifold (e.g., bad O-ring, gasket, primer).
  3. Carburetor is improperly adjusted
These are some of the more typical reasons that can cause a small engine to surge.
