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

It sounds like you need to adjust the high side carburetor screw just a little bit. It is not getting enough fuel to keep it running when you pull the throttle. If you will turn the high side screw out about an 1/8 of a turn it should solve your problem.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
