Hello Eveyone. New member Randy Fife here. I joined in hopes of getting some answers to an engine cut-out problem. I have an 07 - 660 with a high compression kit; includes cam, exhaust, and an Edlebrock carb including the electric fuel pump. It's always run fine, a little hard to start (just turn over). Now it after I go just several humdred yards, the engine dies like soneone turned off the key. It starts right up again and goes for a while short longer and cuts out again. I've changed many parts including the spark plug, coil, plug wire and cap, safety neutral switch, cleaned the carb, emptied the fuel tank and added fresh high test gas, fuel filter, removed air filter. I don't know what next to try. I'm going to hook up a Fluke meter next and run the thing until it cuts out and see if there's a voltage drop when it cuts out. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, Randy Fife.

Open the radiator cap, start the rhino stomp on the gas pedal, if radiator fluid overflows this may be a blown head gasket. On rhinos it is very common for normal running w a blown head gasket until engine is hot or reved out.

check that head gasket.. I have been replacing head gaskets every week on the 700 rhinos.. Also Check output on the pickup coil.. Try unplugging the regulator and running it also..
