    I have a 751 bobcat that won't stay running. It was running fine and then it bounced over a log and sputtered and shut off. I tried restarting to no avail. Opened up the door and primed the system and got it running but it would only run a few min before shutting down again. And have not been able to get running any other way for more than a few min. Any ideas

    It may be your fuel pickup line.....Fill it up to the top. If it runs fine for a little bit than that's your problem. Its a pretty cheap fix.

    Well $200 later and its back up and running. The mechanic replaced old style pick up tube with new version and did a few other little things and she is back up and running like a top. Thanks for all the help.
