Snowblower problem

Hi, Have a Tecumseh engine LH195SP that's being a pain.  I rebuilt the carb with all new parts, but what happens after running for a few minutes, it stalls.  I'm thinking it might be the coil is going bad?

    Does it start right up after stalling or do you have to wait? If so how long before it will start backup.
    Yeah I would check for spark when it dies.

    Hi, After it stalls, if I wait a few minutes, it will start again, but then it acts like it's starving for fuel.   I did pull the carb back off to make sure nothing was loose, or the gasket got damaged, then I did notice that the bowl on the bottom was located wrong,  I did line it up where it's supposed to be, and will reinstall the carb today and see if that was the problem.

    Put the carb back on, started 2nd pull, put in full throttle, put auger on, ran for about 4-5 mins, then stalled.  Put choke back on, started right up again, did the same thing again.  Sounds like its losing fuel. Will take tank off and check the line from that to the carb, or maybe just replace it.

    Did you try loosening the fuel cap? It may not be venting.

    Hi All, Well, after talking to the owner, someone else worked on this machine before me. Anyway, did try loosening the tank cover ,but didn't help, then finally removed the fuel line from tank to carb, and low and behold, the line was plugged.   I cut the line open to find out what was in it, and found a spider had built a nest.  The only thing I can think how this happened, when the other person was working on the carb, the spider must've decided to make home in the fuel line. LOL.    Thanks for the suggestions from all.  Butch T....
