Craig, make sure you pushed the seat all the way down. it sound like if you put a kit in it and it is doing what you are saying my guess is the seat isn't down all the way. causing it to starve for fuel. you might be sure the fuel lines and fuel filter are good. sometimes by replacing fuel filter and fuel line it will run as good as new. cheap fix doesn't cost that much while your on the fuel system.

Why BRIGGS and STRATTON 7.0hp ohv starts to die out when I start to spray it works for a min then sharts choking?

How old is the engine? Could be a dirty carburetor, stuck choke, clogged fuel filter or bad gas. Put a bottle of carburetor cleaner into the gas tank, start it up and let it run at idle for 5 minutes and then try to put load on the engine.

1988 aric cat 440 jag when primed will start and run then dies

Sounds like there is water in your fuel. If there is, you can see it in the bottom of the tank or just drain it and put fresh new gas in it. If straight fuel is left in small engines in the off seasons, they will gum up the carb with varnish and the carb will need to be removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.

Engine runs but back fires then dies when put under load

Rebuild the carburetor. Just replace the old gaskets, diaphragms, needle and seat. You can get a rebuild kit from your local lawm mower repair shop. also, don't run last years gas and if you keep gas in the tank over the winter buy a winterizer and pour it in the tank when starts to get cold. Hope this helps!

Johnson outboard stalls when it warms up

Little Johnson outboards are famous for being very easy to start, So- first pump up the gas, then set the throttle open to the neutral stop -pull thru once -then set the choke to fully closed (look down the carb and see if it is) and pull thru 2 more times- open the choke. try again --If it is not running by now you have a bad ignition, or the engine has no compression. - very likely if you are running the wrong spark plugs. You may have some shattered reed valves.

See if the spark plugs are getting wet with fuel.

Had a problem with my Sears riding mower late last summer. It runs for like 5 minutes then will conk out. I wait 5 minutes 10 minutes or so, it starts up and conks out again like after 3-4 minutes. I...

check your gas tank cap, it is vented, if it gets clogged up fuel will not flow properly and engine dies of fuel starvation. By waiting a few minutes you have allowed the pressure to equalize in the tank enough to get enough fuel for engine to run.

Engine Stalls out

The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I think your problem might be your fuel relay which is situated next to the fuse box in the engine compartment.
