How old is your gas?
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

New. It’s the same gas I use with my riding mower. I drained out all the old gas last year when I took the tank off to start working on the ring job. Didn’t think it was going to take 8 months but I guess life has its own plans sometimes.

Ok so I ran her for a hour or so and it ran really good. I turned it off and it took about 10 minutes until I could get it started again. The coil was not hot, I had a good spark that jumped about a 1/4 inch or so and I used my timing gun and have it set right at the mark on the pulley. It started really quick the first pull before it was hot.

Hi,
Below is a page from the Cub service manual, showing the timing marks a 1957 LoBoy should have. There should be 2 marks on the front pulley. You can see if you timed it to the right mark.

Align mark number 1 in the pic, with the pointer when the engine is running at slow idle speed, about 500 RPM. Use only the pic, and the description below it, they are talking about other things on the page.

The carburetor float height needs to be set right for the engine to start and run good.
It should be set like the Cub service manual says. :)
