Echo Clipper Won't Stay Running. Help?

HCR-1500 Starts up ok. After you get it running and warmed up, it dies out. Has new fuel line last summer. Never had a carb, and they aren't badly priced these days. Any suggestions? Thanks, gents. Hot Ajax

Re: Echo Clipper Won't Stay Running. Help?

So, if it starts and runs OK until the engine gets warm, I might suspect something in the ignition system. I have had a few ignition coils that had failures when warm, but were OK when cool. I have had a time or two where the spark plug also seemed to have issues only when hot, and replacing it corrected the issue.
Another possibility is the fuel tank vent. When it won't run well, unscrew the gas cap some to vent the tank and see if it runs ok then.
