Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Have you tried adjusting the low and high side settings on the carburetor? I would start with a minor adjustment by turning the high side screw out just a little and see if it helps. If you can't get it adjusted out then you will most likely need to install a new rebuild kit the diaphragms are most likely not pumping properly.
