Thank you for that

was it low on fuel,

sounds like you may have picked up some trash from fuel tank

I could only get to one line to bleed which i did and manually worked the fuel pump. it started and runs well but still dies when
i lower the throttle real fast,don
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

HI

Sorry for the delay

I still believe you have some trash in the tank or the filter is sucking air

run a clear line from the return to the tank

see if you have bubbles in line, if yes, sucking air

I hope this helped you
