Customer Question

I have a hush arena 150bt. It starts and idles great. When I throttle it up it will go and then die right down and usually will stall unless I feather the throttle. The dealer told me it was the carb so I replaced it and still does the same thing. New plug and air filter. Cleaned tank out and have fresh 93 octane mixed 50:1. I'm lost. Any idea or recommendation would be highly appreciated. Thanks. Steve

Hello Steve. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be happy to assist you. You mentioned a new air filter. What about the fuel filter inside your fuel tank, did you replace it?

No. I did not know their was 1. How do I get to it ?if this is it I feel like an idiot. Thanks for your response. I will wait for your answer about getting to the fuel filter.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your reply. If you empty all of the gas from your fuel, this will give you a better view of your fuel filter. If you tilt your empty fuel tank, you will hear your fuel filter moving around inside.

It is attached to the end of one of your fuel hoses.

How can I get it out and replace it with a new one ?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Find a stiff piece of wire, and bend the end of your wire, to form a small hook. Reach into your fuel tank, and pull the end of your fuel hose and fuel filter out.
