You need to adjust your idle screws. Start at 1 and a half turns out for High and Low then go from there.

Why is it failing?

open gas cap and see if it will run again. m,any times the gas tank vents clog and the engine can't draw gas after a few minutes.
another thought is the oil mixture.. 50:1 with oil made for air cooled engines....not boat engine oil

Rancher 55 will start and run for approx. 30 min. Then will shut down and not restart until completley cool.

Could be a couple of things, when it satrts to die, just slacken off the filler cap, if it picks up again then it is a fuel tank breather issue, the other possibility is the igniton unit breaking down when hot, the only answer here is to replace the unit.

If it starts OK and runs fine for a few minutes you may have debris (dirt) in your gas tank. The dirt settles on the bottom, you start the motor and through vibration and shaking the dirt gets mixed up in the gas and sucked onto the fuel filter until the motor starves and dies. When the motor dies the dirt settles back on the bottom and you start all over. With the motor off, shake the gas up well and drain the tank into a bucket so you can check for debris. If there is a lot, half fill the tank, shake it up and drain again. Also, you may want to check your gas can to make sure the debirs isn't coming from there.

GAP is the opening between terminals at the end of the spark plug ( on the threaded side of the spark plug) but spark plugs should come with the right gap from factory, as for your problem with to restart your blower it is ok just need to let cool down for 15 min or more.

Most likely your fuel pump regulator that is malfunctioning.

Husqvarna 323L gas trimmer runs & starts great but looses power after 10-15 min and if you give it gas it dies. let it cool and it runs great for another 10-15min. trimm has less than 5 hours

You have a clogged gas cap. Try this: The next time you run your trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start running again. It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?! Well, give it try. Clear the breathing holes form debris, or buy a new gas cap.
