Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
It is very possible that your carburetor is starving for fuel. Check to make sure you are getting a steady flow of fuel, from your fuel tank, to your fuel pump, then from your fuel pump, to your carburetor. Also check to see if the plunger on your fuel shut off solenoid is fully retracting, when your ignition switch is on.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
