I have a 1958 35 hp Evinrude that was running well for a while, but now when i use it, it will run for about 10 minutes and then suddenly shut down completely, usually during full throttle. I've replaced the gas lines and cleaned out the fuel filter, but the problem still occurs. Also, this problem occurs with a 1987 Evinrude 48 SPL engine that I own. Usually it'll take about 30 minutes to get either one of them running again after the shutdown. Both oil mixes are correct. I don't think it's the gas tanks because they seemed pretty clean. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be would be greatly appreciated.
