I Have Adjusted The Carb Settings In And Out But Cant Find A Medium To Keep It From Stalling.everything Looked Good In The Carb, The Diaphram And Needle.new Gas. Need Some Help With This , Thanks For Any Suggestions.

If you are confident about the carb, check the exhaust/muffler for blockage or spark arrestor. Also inspect the cylinder and piston.

jarhead,try taking the muffler off and seeing if the exhoust ports or muffler is partly stoped up.This will cause an engine to go dead sometimes.And then adjust the carb.if needed.

Another cause.......often over looked is a missing or un-connected fuel filter (in the fuel tank).

Check for a loose cylinder,they can come loose and cause a air leak,also check compression with a gauge,should be 90# or above to run right.
