Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. . I would empty the seafood mix out and start with fresh gas , it could be a few things . Backfiring can be I timing issue , a carburetor issue etc . The carburetor could have a dirty fuel screen inside it .
That sounds like a carburetor or valve issue, it's running bad once it's hot because the carburetor may have a partial blockage in one of its fuel air.mixture passageways and it can't get enough air to stay even with the fuel so it starts missing etc .
Van you test compression once it dies ?
Hi were you able to test the compression?
