Wont stay running after a few mins of riding

I have a Manco Dingo with a Briggs & Stratton 9hp engine. It starts and runns fine but after about 5 to 10 mins of riding time it starts stalling out, and bogging. Once I let it sit for a few seconds it starts and runs fine again.

When it stalls out, pull the drain on the carb float bowl. If there is fuel in the bowl, drain it completely and restart.

If the engine dies again as it has been, the problem is likely the coil. If you have a fuel delivery issue, the float bowl would be dry and you would look for fuel flow problems.

Once you have eliminated the fuel flow possibilities, the problem that most fits what you have described is the coil. They can heat up with use and start acting up. Eventually they give out altogether. A coil for that engine would run about $60.00.

Hope this helps,

I'd check the vent in the fuel cap as well. Sounds like it may be clogged or otherwise blocked.
