let your hubby use it for mudding and tell him to buy you a new one! just kidding, breakdowns are frustrating. Good luck!! Maybe your fuel pump is getting weak, after time the rubber "paddles" get weak and flimsy and will allow gas to slip by and create a void and an airlock in the fuel line. it makes sense when you have to let it set before it will start and run again.....have to let that air dissipate and the line refill with fuel....just a thought from past experiences!! I hope you get it going again!!
