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.
Expert:  Donald replied 2 years ago.

I do believe that the surging is caused by either a partially clogged jet or fuel passage inside your carburetor.

Expert:  Donald replied 2 years ago.

Did you soak your carburetor, prior to cleaning it?

Expert:  Donald replied 2 years ago.

First, check to see if you are getting a steady, and continuous flow of fuel from your fuel tank, to your carburetor. If you are, then it is very likely that our problem is caused by your carburetor.

Expert:  Donald replied 2 years ago.

I would soak your carburetor really good, and use a small wire to clean the small jets and fuel passages. Then use some carburetor cleaner in can, to clean every hole you see in your carburetor, followed by some compressed air, if you have an air compressor.
