Just purchased this used tractor 1967/1968 10hp Briggs and Stratton Simplicity 2110 Landlord. Tractor starts up immediately.....The engine sound good. After run time and cutting for approximately 15 min. the engine dies out. After disengaging blades, returning to an idle it will start, but will not allow to rev up engine or engage pto or blades.

I rebuilt carborator immediately...then checked gas flow..but to no evale......Same problem. Does any one have any suggestion. This machine is so clean. It has every attatchment (blade, blower, vaccume, cutting deck)and seem to be in mint condition other than this particular situation. However I am at a loss of where to go from here.

Hi,
Sounds like a nice find. The first thing I would check is to loosen fuel cap and see if it runs better. If the tank isn't getting vented it will cause this problem. Does it put out a lot of black smoke when it is acting up? If it does the next thing I would look at is if the carb is getting overheated from the muffler. Let us know a few what you find and maybe we can go from here. Good luck, Al

I agree with Al and Jeff on their suggestions. Maybe a bad condensor or the screen in the gas tank is clogged and just letting enough gas thru to let the engine run for a short time. Make sure governor springs are free while you are at it. Sure sounds like a fuel starving hot running engine. You guys sure have a great site here and I love to drop in and read your comments even though I don't own a orange one "YET" but they all have engines don't they???? Best-Chuck
