Hey thanks for advice first I changed the fuel filter and it was horrible it was dirty as it can be and I blew in the filter and brown gas poured out well I put a new one in and then I squirted the carb cleaner in the housing and it cranked but it seem to just burn the carb cleaner then it would cut back off I did this many times and same thing it seems like its gettin no gas do you think the fueul pump shpuld be changed cause the filter was bad. Opr what do you suggest?
