It sounds like the float is sticking in the carb. Since the carb is higher than the fuel tank it pulls the fuel in by vaccum of the engine. when running at high rpms, it can burn the fuel thats flowing into the carb, when you idle down, the bowl of the carb is filling up with fuel faster than the engine can burn it and causing it to flood. Then when it shuts off at idle it does not want to start back up because it is flooded. To make a long stary short, pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and your problems should be solved.

I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.

Try taking the engine shroud off and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use some emery cloth or fine sandpaper. They might be a little rusty and your not getting good contact.
Let me know if this helps.

Testimonial: "your information seem to be correct it started the frist crank i'll let set for a day and try again thanks fro your help"
Hi the key is moulded as part of the flywheel on most machines these days which doesent take much to sheer off , By the sounds of it this may well be your problem.

go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.
