indication is it is running out of fuel to the carburetor. Can you remove the float bowl on the carburetor and check for water in the fuel bowl? And at same time see if fuel runs into the bowl in quantity.

it's getting fuel well i guess I ask the question to soon. I took off the cowling to look at the key or kill switch and it's a lousy connection I'm hoping that's the problem?

oK, but don't overlook that the carburetor may have water in it!
