Replaced carb,fuel lines,gaskets & fiberspacer,foam filter,gas cap,fuel filter assy,& in line primer.Starts right up,idles fine, low speed ok, acts like it runs out of gas when full throttle. Tried with cap off, same result but runs full throttle when I keep pumping the primer. Whats happening? TIA Rich

Hello Rich!

Try backing out the high speed screw on the carb about 1/4 turn or so. This should get it going. If not, you may need to clean the carb.
