I have a 1971 ted williams 7 hp. It will start great and run great for a while then it will rev up and die.
Ive cleaned the carb and checked the diaprham pump element, its good to go. If i pump the bulb on the fuel line every so often i can keep it running. I have a 1970 eska also and it runs fine useing the same tank and fuel line, so makes me rule out that. Have also traded carbs and same result. Driveing me crazy. I dont understand it at all.

Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all
