This is getting old :(

As you know I purchased a new brass float and installed it and had to make a few adjustments.......after a bit got it running and starting really good.
That only lasted until the next time I wanted to use it...............right back to square one now:banghead3It starts up and idles fairly good...move the throttle up a little and still runs, but any more and it just runs then starts to bog down and the governor tries to keep it going but fails.
I blew out the passages, tried adjusting the float up and down and all with the same results...I was tempted to try a BFH but held off on that as a last resort.
I am open to ideas as I don't have any idea what to look at next. I have not touched the fuel pump as I really don't think that is the problem? [float bowl is about 3/4 full when I take the top off and the clear gas filter is always full ] I blew the line out from the carb. back to the tank and when I start it the filter fills back up right away.

Thanks for the ideas, I will take a look tomorrow.
Thanks Gt I will check it again but it is clean and was one thing I was checking. I put the new gas line and filter on and the filter is the small clear one with the screen so it is easy to watch. [mounted it just behind the coil]
Re: This is getting old :( update again

Well I started out this evening by checking and cleaning the points and the plugs.
I tried to get a new set of plugs but was to late getting there :banghead3 oh well clean up the old ones as best as I could and checked the fire.....lots of fire!
Put the plugs back in and fired it up and [knock wood] she is again purring like a kitten :) lets hope it lasts this time....:bananapow:bannana::bannana:
Thanks for the help guys:trink39:
