the engine starts 2nd pull every time then after about 10 mins it cuts out and wont start . after about 2 hrs it starts ok .then the same happens again.i have tried to adjust the carb .it always starts with full choke then its ok when the choke in pushed in

ranwell1 :

This sounds like the ignition coil is bad. They tend t run until they get hot then quit. When the engine shuts off, quickly test the spark to see if you have any spark. if you have NO SPARK, then the ignition coil is bad.
