hello john. my name is ***** ***** ill see what I can do to help. it sounds like your fuel system is starving. here are some things to check

fuel lines cracked or leaking allowing air to enter the suction side

restriction in the line or restricted fuel filter(check fuel flow from the tank to the filter)

a fuel tank that is not venting (it will have a suction sound when you remove the cap after running the engine)

restricted air filter

restricted fuel return line

check those things out and rite back with your findings so we can move forward from there
