Leaf Blower engine cuts out unless full throttle

The engine on a McCulloch leaf blower BVM240 cuts out unless I keep it at full revs. This started happening during normal use.

Since then I've changed the spark plug, as the spark on the old one was non-existant. Now I have a good spark.

The only way to get it started is to pour a small amount of fuel directly into the engine, then keep it at full revs.

It seems like fuel is not flowing freely!

The little fuel filter on the end of the fuel line in the gas tank is probibly clogged. It should be easily replaced.
