Resolved Question:

I have a tecumseh OHH50 that runes a cyclone vacuum rake. It was running fine at full throttle and suddenly died. It now starts and runs at idle speed, but as soon as I move the throttle lever to full throttle, it immediately stalls. I have replaced the air filter and spark plug and put new gas in, but no improvement.

Hi There!
Thank you for letting me try and help you here.
It sounds like you got something sucked up into the main jet and clogged it up.
Here's an idea
Get some carb cleaner or gas that you can squirt in the carb.
Start it up and try to rev it a little. When it acts like it wants to die off shoot some fuel in the carb. It if picks up for a second that means your problem is in the carb and it will have to be cleaned out to fix the problem.
It sounds to me like that's where your problem is.
Try that and if you still need help come back here and let us know and we'll see what we can do to help you get it fixed.

What can I use to "shoot" gas up the carb?
Expert:  T. Phoenix replied 5 years ago.
I have an old oil can that I use but if you want to use carb cleaner that will work too.
