Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, My name is Jay
Where the fuel comes out of the fuel tank you have a screen there or a fuel filter inline that is clogged. You are not getting enough fuel to the engine to get to the higher loads and rpms.
Follow the fuel line from carburetor to the fuel tank and clean or replace any inline filter. If there is a fitting on bottom tank then remove it and see if there is a plastic screen on it that can be cleaned or replaced.
