Ran the thing out of gas, tried to start it a few times, go it out of the water, filled it with gas, put it back in, it ran good for about 10 minutes, stalled like the battery died, cleaned the carb out,changed plugs & fired right up but now bogs and has lost power.

when a motor has been cooked ( run with out water ) the rings loose tension , the pistons score the cylinder walls, the head cracks or warps and the head gasket generally blows. In mechanical circles , your best option is a replacement motor either from an engineering rebuilding shop or a good unit from the wreckers.
Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.
The security has been activated. you have to turn the ignition on, but don't try to start it, let it set for ten minutes turn it off without pulling the key out and try to startit. you may have to do this three times on ten off, on ten off, on ten off, then try to start it.
Good luck Randy
sounds like you blew some junk up into the carbs or injectors whatever the casse maybe. if you can try to blow some air through system or get a good cleaner and run it through the system, if its not too bad that should take care of it. These dont like running out of gas, try not to do so in the future. 1 more thing, sometimes a blast or two of ether will help also. Good luck
Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first
Pull the carburetor and clean it for staters.Be sure to change oil any little bit of moisture in the crankcase will let it smoke white by seeping by the valves and piston rings.Also put a little small amount of dry gas in the gas tank to rid all of the water that may have been left in the tank. I some of this will help you.
Your last sentence has me wondering, did u purchase gas for both vehicles at the same gas station? How far apart did u fill them up (same day, 2 days apart...) I am wondering if you got some bad gasoline. It would explain your problems and the coincidence of both vehicles giving u this type of problem. How about draining the gas out of the vehicle w/ the least in the tank, replace the fuel filter again add fresh gas from a different station. This is of course assuming your fuel pump is ok. When the gas is removed do u see any sediment? Any water would be at the bottom of the tank (gas floats on water) so u should check for water also. Let me know what u discover. good luck!! countrycurt0
i will put 5 gallons of gas then have some one turn the ignition on while listening to the water pump if you hear a noise coming from the fill up hole then most likely your water pump is good is not i will check fuel pump rellay and fuse replace as necesary check pupm sound if no sound replace fuel pump.
