Welcome, these motors are known for clogging VST strainers, bad Low pressure fuel pumps, clogged fuel filters and on board fuel filters, and even including the fuel lines and primer bulbs. Also you have an o2 sensor, that should be cleaned every 2 years. You will need to do a fuel pressure test on the LP fuel pumps.
