Same as guy below, 16 hp Kohler command on a 1999 Saber/Scotts Home depot mower, starves itself for fuel after about 1/2 hr. Load or no load. Manual blade engagement. Pulled tank, changed fuel lines and filter.Well, it's like this. The things that you tell me are not ther problem.ty much have to be the problem. I will give you several things to look at and reasons why they might be a problem. I am not saying that they are a 100% cure, but at least they are things to tink about. Ther firts thing that comes to mind is the float adjustment. If it is adjusted to low, you will not get enough gas and it will shut off after a while because it is using more gas faster than the engine is takeing in. It also could be the fuel pump that is not fuctioning quite right. Here are some of my standard answers for the carburetor and Vapor lock symptoms. Just read all of my answer before you act. 1. Todays gasoline is not the same as it was just a few years ago. There have boon changes in gas formulas. DO NOT USE REGULAR 87 OCTANE GAS! Use a good quality, good brand 89 octane fuel. DO NOT USE CHEAP GAS. 2. One of the problems you seem to have is a phonomenon called "VAPOR Lock". This is caused when fuel vaporizes in the fuel line and doesn't allow the proper amount of gas to get to the carburetor. This is usually caused bu the fuel ine getting too close to a heat source such as the muffler of the cylinder head or even sometimes the engine block. Also cheap fule of 87 octane fuels will cause this to happen more often. Check all the fuel lines and make sure that they are away from heat. As mowers are operated, they tend to accumulate grass under the engine shoud. We call this a "Birds nest or mouse nest." These nests will keep the engine from cooling as they block the flow of air to the head and cylinder. Clean this grass out several times a year. 3. Another issue can be a fuel issue in the carburetor. As engines sit or get older, fuel that is left in the carburetor can turn to gum and varnish and cause this and other problems. Also, any gasoline that was left in a gas can for a period of more than 30 days must be discarded because it also has begun to turn to varnish. More than 70% of all of our repairs in our lawn mower business are due to this same issue. You most likely have dirt, gum, varnish. in your carburetor plugging up the small passageways and jets in the carb. It Must be removed from the engine, cleaned very well, blown out with compressed air and reassembled using a NEW carburetor rebuild kit. ALWAYS clean the fuel tank and replace the fuel line when doing this repair or you may have to do it all over again. The inside of the fuel line disintegrates over time and these small pieces of rubber will plug up the carb too. Dirt and water from a dirty fuel tank will also plug up the carb. Find the Model, type and serial or code numbers off of the engine and take them to your local dealer to get the carb kit. 4. Make sure that you install a new Air Filter. DO NOT CLEAN AIR FILTERS always REPLACE. Replace air filters no less often than every 20 hrs of use. Plugged air filters will cause many problems. There may be other things, but this should be enough for now. Please click "ACCEPT" or I won't get paid .

ThanksIf you have NOT completely rebuilt the carburetor with a "COMPLETE" carburetor kit, then the problem probably is still in the carburetor. The rubber float needle seat tends to swell over time and especially with todays "garbage gasoline" that contails alcohol. When this seat swells it pushes the foat needle and consequently the float lower. This causes the float to not let enough gas into the carburetor. I suppose it could also be a fuel pump that is causing the problems too. Most people think that the fuel filter must be full for the engine to run. This is NOT correct. Some enignes run ver well wtih only a fraction of the filer haveing fuel in it. It just keeps replaceing what is taken from it and there is a great deal of air in the filer too. I still think it is in the carburetor. but you may want to replace the fuel pump. Another thought I had was the fuel filter screen that is insde the tank my be partially restricted. Remove the fuel cap and blow backwards through the line to disloge the debries.I use aftermarket fuel filters all the time. ahve to knpw which filter to use on which engine. The main difference in filters is the size of the particles that it filters out. Look at it this way. If I were tring to sift gravel . There is chicken wire that has very large holes in it and would keep large particals out. Then there is screen door screen that would keep small particles out. And leave only the sand. It takes a lot longer to sift through the screen door screen than the chicken wire screen. Therefore, applying this pricliple to fuel filters. There are different Micron filter sizes. A micron is the unit of measure that they use to measuer the size of particle a filter keeps out. If you get a filter that is too restrictive, then it takkes a lot more pressure to push the fuel through the filter. An engine without a fuel pump needs a filter with larger holes so that the gas will flow through it with only the atmospheric pressure. A filter that uses a fuel pump can have a better filter because the pump pushes the fuel through the filter with more force. If you have the worm filter you won't get enough fuel.Glad it worked. Thanks
