Make sure you have a vented gas cap installed. The engine will only be able to pull fuel from the tank as long there isn't a vacuum on the tank from it pulling fuel out of the tank. A none vented cap, or a clogged cap will cause this.

SOURCE: Bolens 4.5 Briggs and Stratton: I prime the carb

Be sure the fuel is fresh....meaning, fresh from the gas station. IF that doesn't fix it, replace the carb.

Losing prime to carb after warm up


Check fuel line to see if it is getting near anything hot. If it is, you will need to get some insulation behind or around it. It sounds like it is vapor locking on you.

Losing prime to carb after warm up


Check the fuel pump pressure. IF this is heat related, it could also be a bad gasket causing a vacuum leak. The other thing could be the fuel line is getting too hot causing the gasoline to create a vapor lock.

I ran out of gas, now it won't start. what do i do?


Okay....I think your bike may have a vacuum operated fuel petcock.....which is the fuel valve on the bottom of the tank. It shuts the fuel off automatically when the engine stops and the hose from the intake to the side of the petcock loses vacuum.
So when you restart the bike the petcock is closed till the engine starts...which is okay because there is a small amount of fuel in the carb.........until you run out of gas....then the engine quits and the carb is empty.
To handle this situation, typically there is a prime position on the petcock that allows flow without vacuum to "prime" the empty carb......usually marked as PRI on the petcock,
So rotate the lever on the petcocck to prime....wait a couple minutes....get the bike started and set the petcock back to the normal setting....don't leave it on PRIME as fuel may flow overflowing the carb.

check the intake gaskets. in the middle front and middle rear. If they are oily, it more than likely sucked part of the gasket in. When it warms up the leak gets bigger. The easy way to check is to get some carb cleaner and spray all around the intake while idling and warm. DO NOT SPRAY ANY EXHAUST PARTS , carb cleaner is combustible. The truck should stumble or even shut off when spraying with the carb cleaner if there is a leak.
