Fuel tank and pump seem to be nice and clean

Hey Aaron can you pull the spark plugs, I would like you to look at them and also if possible get a compression reading.
And also if you can go into a little more detail when it starts to run bad what RPM are you getting out of the engine and also about how fast ? I need some more detailed symptoms
Thanks Aaron
