My Ld3 dies around 1/2 tank. I still have the Force .12 in it. Temps are fine. I checked for air leaks on the engine and tank. Everything looks fine. My LHS tech guy took a look at it and could not find any problems. I have tried richer and leaner with no change. The only thing I have noticed is a bit more foaming in the tank than I have seen with my buggy and trucks. My LHS told me the Force .12 is junk and there was nothing that could be done about the problem. I only bought the LD3 to mess around with in my shop and don't want to spend a bunch of money on it. Any suggestions?

What happens when you only put 1/2 tank of fuel in to start with?

They might be right; the Force .12 is a cheapo engine at $60. The problem could also lie in the LSN/idle settings because those are tricky to get right.

Also, after the engine stalls, does it start right back up or do you have to wait for it to cool?
