    2003 BF15D - Starts then stalls?

    I have a 2003 BF15D with only 20hrs on it being used as a kicker on a Lund ProV 2025. The issue is the motor will start, idle for a minute or two then stall. You have to let it sit for a few minutes before you can restart it at which time it does the same thing? If you try to power up it stalls as well. Done all the usual, new plugs, both filters, lines, bulb, checked all connections. Checked the fuel pump. Prior to purchase this year the owner had new gaskets put on both ends of the carb. I also checked the Thermal SE Valve and it appears to meet all the specs? Next step would be to replace the carb, but before I do this is there anything else I am forgetting to check? The unit is an electric start with a auto carb on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Also wanted to mention, I have to back the throttle stop screw all the way out to even get it to start and idle??
