kohler engine wont run

I have a kohler 14 hp command Started having probs with gas flow. After running some it would drain fuel filter empty. Yes there is still gas in tank. when it would start to stall i would put choke all the way up it would keep running untill it would start to bog (then there would be some fuel in the inline filter) then i could put throttle bact to normal position and it would run for awhile then it does again. Replaced all fuel lines,fuel filter tried with gas cap off took fuel pump off (seems to be working ok manually) just hope its riding on cam ok. PLease help me not sure where to go next PS the carbs not easy to access

Sounds like the carburetor is restricted and needs cleaning.
