:welcome: to SBF Mrfedex. How long does the engine run before it dies, and is it usually about the same amount of time between episodes? You may have a fuel restriction in the gas line slowing fuel to the carb, OR, it may be as simple as a gas cap vent that is faulty. Try loosening the cap and see how the engine behaves. Let us know what happens, and we will continue from there.

:iagree: If yours has the fuel shut off like mine you might also want to take that out if the hose will reach to the tank fitting.

Try one thing at a time so you know what is or wasn't the cause.

Disconnect everything that is attached to the engine's ignition kill. Something might be grounding the ignition.

Yeah I forgot to tell you guys I replaced all fuel lines,rinsed fuel tank out while I did alm this work.. It even has a newer fuel cap as well .. But I am going to try all the things you fellas said.. As far as it running it fires rite up,I let it warm up and then put the snow to it and canr even make it 50 ft and it will quit while under load. Usually fires rite back up and will go along and hit the end of the driveway stuff and just starts coming into it and will quit again.. .. this carburetor has a fixed main jet .I soaked it in carb cleaner over night and blew all the holes out with air and aresol carb cleaner.. I love blowing snow with the old beast when she stays running, they dont make em like that old girl anymore!!!Thank you guys now for all the ideas..I will report back when I try these things... Take care

When you go to restart it do you just pull the cord or do you need to choke and or prime it ??

Do you run it with the choke all the way off ??
How about trying it with one click of choke and if it dies try two ??

When you cleaned the carb how did you set the float ??
