I have a steamway 2100 pro lean. It keeps shutting off after you put a load on it. It has a new carb, fuel pump, plugs, filters, etc and still the same issue. The pressure gauge doesn't work. Would that have any effect on the situation.

I had same issue with mine years ago, it turned out to be a worn out motor (10,000 hours)
Replaced motor and it’s still a great machine.

Five years ago, The Kohler motor would bog down and die under load no matter what I tried. It would idle all day long no problem. It may have had a bad cam shaft lobe.
Replacement kohler motor is running in the machine now and no more problems or oil leaks.

How many hours on it?
I had a similar issue and it was fuel delivery related. I added an inline fuel pump from the truck fuel tank and it cured it.
