Question about Craftsman Garden
I have been working on this mower for about a month, have had many helpful replys, but; problem still there. It runs great for 10 min then starts losing power, almost quits, then comes back up again in power, after a few minutes the same thing happens again, over and over again. Finally will quit. I have cleaned the air filter, put in a new plug set at .30, removed the coil (armature-magneto) cleaned it, and reset at 13 thousands- a business card length away from the fly wheel, changed oil and filter, removed carb and flushed with carb cleaner, renewed gas lines and filter, removed gas tank- flushed and cleaned, cleaned gas cap and checked the gap in the top it is open and clean. when it quit I checked the plug to see if I was still getting sparks I was and plenty. I know the problem is either in the firing or the fuel, but; I am running out of ideas... need more help folks. Don. crimson9

Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps
