Sunday, check the spark and it is good. Started up and ran for an hour and lost power. Brought it to garage to replace battery terminals (was going to do anyway) and saw my coil wire, Part of insulation gone and wire grounded to tractor, replaced.

Started up and ran for a while and lost power again. I brought it to the shed, turned it off, shut gas off, and heard a hiss. Opened the battery/gas compartment. Looks like I have vapor lock. Took off the gas cap and heard a release of pressure.

I did buy a higher quality of points and will not buy points or sediment valve from TSC again. Will also buy a new gas cap.

Got a couple acres mowed. 10 more to go! haha.

I agree with jmor.. it was not vapor lock.. but DO get a vented cap.

you can even drill your old one and install a loose pop rivit in the hole. cheap.. easy..

I will get vented cap.

If not vapor lock, then what?

I have noticed when I increase throttle lately, it takes a while to increase speed. A good 5+ seconds. My only thought is rebuilding governor. But why would it work in the beginning and after a while loose power?

why not vapor lock? why? because you don't have a fuel pump. vapor lock is fuel pump nomenclature.

takes a while to come to speed? i'd be looking at carb settings first. both extremely rich and way lean could cause this. does it pop any? or gurgle?
