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.

It sounds like a weak spark to me. If the coil is weak, or the plug is dirty or even if the gas is old it might do that.

Might be worth checking the whole ignition system. I would check with a vom to see if you are getting a full 12v the coil.
