Bingo! newz, yur' DA' MAN! The rebuild on the fuel pump did the trick. This baby is running better than the day I brought it home new. It cuts through tall wet grass like a knife through hot butter.
Like you stated, the see through fuel filter doesn't near fill up when running, I'd say somewhere between 10 and 20%.
Thanks everyone for the replies!
