Kabota looses power in cut
« on: March 28, 2012, 11:02:17 PM »
Last time this happened it was a faulty fuel line. One I had installed.(long story >:() It cracked or pin holed and was letting air in. Got a new one and it worked good. Today I was cutting some logs and about 6 hrs into it the engine would start to die about 3 feet into the cut. Idled fine. I thought it might be the lines again so I sprayed some oil on them. Then I took the air filter off and blew the dust out of it. It had a lot of dust in it. Worked fine after that. Could a clogged air filter cause the engine to do this?

Simple answer, -yes. An engine is basically an air compressor. You need fuel and air for combustion.

  Change the fuel filter and check those line again, also make sure the tank vent is not clogged. A clogged air filter could cause loss of power but it would happen right away not 3 feet into the cut and it would be smoking black. You may have moved the fuel lines some cuasing a crack to close for a while.  Steve

You betchum red rider,Air restriction is one of those biggies you check first.Fuel restriction from the bottom of the fuel tank is anouther,crudso collects around the outlet.When your having a problem pull off the fuel line where it goes into the pump/carb est. and check the flow,plugged or dribble check upstream.You can cheat remove the fuel cap and blow air back through the hose but it will replug itself later,clean the system.Keep a spare air cleaner,then clean it properly when your back in your shop.Sometimes you can put an air intake up and away from the dust,it helps.

It was the fuel line.
