Yanmar YSE8 - Runs fine then stops after an hour or so - Ideas why ?
After running the engine for a while it will turn itself off as if I had turned the throttle down.
I cannot restart it for around 20-30 mins, I'm guessing until it cools down again.
When running it sounds good and seems in good order.
Its as if it becomes starved of fuel when it dies.
It also seems to leak oil which causes it to smoke when it gets hot.
I don't know if this is related..
Could anyone offer any clues as to what are the possible causes ?
