Hello I am new to owning a MF 202 work bull with cont gas enigne. So far I really like it. The problem is I used to pretty much all day and didn't have any problems. All of a sudden when I was just about done for the day it just shut off on me. I checked gas and it was about half full. I let it sit for ten minutes and fired right back up but only ran for about 2 min then shut off again. If I pull choke I can get it to run again for a few seconds. I let it sit for a while and it ran for about 5 minutes. Any ideas what could be the issue. Thanks in advanced.

On my 35 Utility gasser, the screen in the carb is missing altogether. I made up a new line, installed a relatively large in-line filter under the battery tray, and a new screen in the filter/separator bowl.

I kept the factory bowl because it still works, parts are still available for it, and it does a good job of removing water, should any condensation form in the tank.

On my 2135 industrial gasser I removed the factory shut off valve with a ball valve, put one of those inline see through plastic fuel filters between the tank, and carb. Then made sure the screen on the elbow in the carb was clean, been trouble free (plus you can see any junk collect in the see through filter).

I have a 202 that started running crazy like you describe. The problem was the brass elbow screen filter where the gas line hooks to the carb. Pulled that elbow out and couldn't see any light coming through that filter while holding it up to the sun.
That's #13 in the picture above. I had a new one on hand since my Ford 8N takes the same part. Put in in and problems were gone. Tractor Supply also carries that part.

Probably has stuff in the fuel tank that got shook around, and is clogging the screen where the fuel shutoff valve is. Or the strainer where the fuel line elbow is in the carburetor is clogged. You can unhook the fuel line from the carburetor, and turn the gas on to see how much gas is coming out of the line, or if the fuel starts to flow less as it goes.
