Hope that is has more than 14.3 hp.


Does it start right back up after it stalls out?

Test for spark using a spark tester when it doesn't want to start. Check the carb float level sight glass to see if the bowl has fuel. Find out what is missing.

Which part of the distributor was the culprit? Did you diagnose the problem to the source or did you swap the distributor out to see if it would change anything?
