You say......:I did notice after some time that in the clear fuel filter I have the gas would flow fine for the first few minutes, then it would drip into the filter. I dont think it is getting enough gas. Again, it will run for about 10-15 minutes then it will act like it is starving for fuel - I pull the choke out it will run for a few more seconds then dies. I have the fuel turned on all the way, so it should be getting fuel from the tank. I drained the tank and refilled it, when I drained the tank it didnt look like any large particles drained out with the gas into the collection container. end quote!

You are right do have a fuel restriction problem.!!!!

Could be in any filter, BUT my guess is......"running the fuel wide open" (which tells me that you are trying to run off the 'Reserve' section of the sed. bowl), and the reserve passage in the sed bowl is plugged up, not letting enough fuel get to the carb bowl, to run the engine!!!

Thus the 10-15 mins of run time you have stated.

MY ? would be/is.....How did you flush out/drain the tank.....through the sed bowl,...OR with the sed bowl out of the tank??????

Next.....Only open the fuel valve at the sed. bowl two full turns, then start the engine after waiting for the carb bowl to fill!!!

If that extends yer run time and or fixes yer problem,....then you have found your run-time problem........(Sed. bowl screens are plugged inside the tank!!!!!)

Just my WAG!!!!!!
