This what i got .2007 raptor with 5500 marques gold gen. First trailer. Previous owner say gen did not run for awhile . Replaceugs oil

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Sorry accidentally hit send ,change plugs oil filters . Tank was empty when i got it threw gas in ran it. Ran fine for a few weeks then noticed it surging / bogging down. Anyways let that go for a bit. Drop tank to replace sender. Replaced all lines with exeption of long run from back to front of trailer. Got all togethr fuel up . Prime and run . This where i at now. After i prime it load / noload. Runs fine for bout 10 min then start surge/ bogging . Everytime . Also the carb is new. I leaning to fuel pump the only thing left. Gettn fuel but not as much as when i prime it . Am i goin the right way dont wanna start replacing things i dont need . Thx

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Tank has neen flushed out 15 gal fresh fuel

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yep

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nope been running it quite a bit while been working on interior and roof. I pulled line and prime with line off and crank it with line off. All work has been done by me so far.
