hello chris my name is ***** ***** ill be your tech today. it sounds like you have a restriction in the system, tank isn't venting or the system is sucking air. have you done anything else besides change the filter?

Expert:  John Oliver replied 2 months ago.

bubbles indicate air entering into the fuel system from someplace. possibly pressurize the tank and check for fuel leaks on the suction side of the system. check for debris in the system at any 90 degree fitting. make sure the fuel return line isn't kinked or plugged. make sure the tank is venting properly

Lot of rubber hoses starts out good no bubbles in system then you can see air in separator will run for 30 minutes or so then it won't run at high throttle will buck and shut off unless you idle down
