1995 Gator 8hp Kawasaki ,Runs great for 5- 25 min .Runs longer just idling then shuts off and wont start for 15 to 30 min ,I have rigged a gas tank and ran a line to the carburetor bypassing the
fuel system and it still shuts off. I have good spark when it runs spark.But very little spark for 15 to 30 min after it shuts off . John Deere dealer rebuilt carb that did not help.The spark plug does not foul but gets black and changed it to. With gas to the carb and good spark it should run .I have tried spraying starting fluid in the air filter and it still wont start until it cools down .Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks Richard

The symptoms you've described above sounds to me like the engine is loosing compression after heating up. The local JD dealership, or any small engine repair shop, should have the tools to check it out for you.
