You should also check the tank to see if there is anything in there that might be moving around and plugging the hole.

op changed the cap twice, but no mention of trying to run it with the cap loose. i would try the loose cap first, then start thinking about an issue with the coil .

sounds like something gets hot and then dies? then it starts OK right away? my first thought was the cap but you changed that twice. now try it loose like you said.

when it dies, i would shut off gas and remove bowl or loosen the drain to see if it is dry of gas. that would point to a clog somewhere?

does it surge or hunt before it dies? or does it just shut down like you are turning key off? if so I would disconnect ground on starter switch and then start and see if it keeps running. is so then maybe switch?

is the oil level ok? does it have a low oil sensor that is malfunctioning?

if nothing else works, i would threaten it with a gas can and a match.

Welcome to the forum! Weird symptoms, and good suggestions so far. Changing the gas cap, and carb, ought to eliminate a lot of the "usual suspects". When it dies, do you just wait a few seconds, pull the cord, and it immediately runs for another few minutes? Or do you have to wait a few minutes, or remove the gas cap, or something, before it will restart?

If you have an inline spark tester, connect that, and see if it suddenly stops flashing (indicating a loss of spark) when the engine dies. If the spark suddenly goes away as it dies, you can stop chasing fuel-related issues.

As orangputeh said, the exact symptoms as it dies would be educational. If it's instant, like you killed the ignition, that's one thing. If it starts to sputter and stumble, that might point to fuel.

- What happens if you turn on the choke as it's dying? Even when I close the fuel shutoff and run my carb dry, adding choke as it starts dying will get it to run for a few more seconds.
- What happens if you spray ether/gas into the carb intake as it's dying?
- Could anything be jiggling around, and grounding out the ignition-kill wire? On my Tecumsehs, that's by the bottom of the throttle lever, I think mine may be green. You could also try disconnecting the wire from the throttle lever. If it has a fuel-shutoff, you can always kill the engine that way, worst-case. Of course, getting it to *stop* hasn't been your problem recently.
