Question about Garden
Huskee 16hp Tecumseh starts and runs great but after four long rows of mowing it shuts down. I wait three minutes then it starts back up and four rows later it shuts down
When it shuts down check it for spark. You sound like you may have a weak coil. OR
You might have water in your fuel and it only runs until it hits the water level in the carb. You can try draining your carb *(do this when mower is cold...never drain gas from a hot mower!) and see if the mower runs longer. While you are draining your fuel you can check the float level too. A float that closes too early or that is partially obstructed might only let in enough fuel to run for short periods. Then, your three minutes of sitting is just to let the carb bowl refill. When you remove the carb bowl let the float hang down and note the fuel flow. Is it fast? Or is it just a slow drip? If it seems slow you should work the float up and down a few times to see if the flow improves. If it does improve consider draining all the fuel out and cleaning the gas tank.
Good luck and be careful!
