    Having problems with it running. Motor will start and run about 30 seconds or so and then dies. It sounds like its starving for fuel. Put new fuel line from tank to motor. Thinking maybe that was problem. But didn't fix problem. Could it be fuel pump or carb float sticking? Fuel drips out of carb if I pump the primer bulb with choke shut. Serial # 2237132

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you don't know how long its been since the carbs were gone through then take them off and rebuild them.
