    Default Bobcat want start

    I have a Bobcat 753 it will run for awhile then run out of fuel then wont start back. Can fill fuel filter and will start back for a minute or so then quiets again.

    Check the suction line in the tank. They get brittle over time and break off or crack near the fitting and suck air.

    I think it's important to mention that they can suck air and still NEVER leak a drop of fuel.

    Also the line can get stopped up with crud from the bottom of the tank.
