Re: Predator engine problem
Some simple suggestions, if you still need them. From your description, it sounds fuel starved. Did you replace the filter? Also, could try to drain the fuel into clear container and inspect the fuel. If it sat for awhile, then your carb cleaning may need repeating, paying close attention to reaming the jets with fine wire. One overlooked possibility is water from condensation or other source displacing fuel in the carb. One drop sitting over a screen to a jet is enough to exhibit these symptoms. On my carb rebuilds I like using an ultrasonic cleaner with my own solution mixed into help breakdown the varnish. Carbs are so cheap many shops just put new ones in instead of rebuilding them.
