4040 versus Sunstar


Recommended Posts

I have a 4040 that may need some help, it runs for a few minutes ( about 20 ) and then stops, will start again after about 10 minutes but takes about an hour wait to run well. Culd it be the coil ? in the mean time i have found a seemingly good Sunstar for a price should i sell the 4040 on Simple tractors and buy the Sunstar or fix the 4040? John S.

John, Could be the coil, could also be the crankcase breather. Have you cleaned it lately and made sure the little balls rattle freely in the breather?
