    After idling for 15 to 20 minutes , motor quit as if it ran out of gas. Tank was 1/2 full. Reach back and primer bulb was soft. Primed and restarted motor. No more issues but I haven't idled for an extended period of time either. What happened?

    sounds like it's time to replace the primer bulb & fuel line from tank to motor. The bulb on my rig gets replaced every 2-3 years. My fuel line is now ethanol approved line so that appears to be holding up better. I'd start there....

    Plus on Major Mark, ethanol does a job on fuel systems.
