Put a new coil in my craftsman Lt1000 still have


Try leaving the fuel cap loose, its possible you have a blocked fuel cap vent which can be cleaned with compressed air. Also if it still dies,check to see if you have spark while its hot. Also check for correct valve clearances. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
