    I have a FS 250 a couple years old that just started to stall if you throttle it more than half way. If you give it full throttle or push primer bulb when it is running it dies. I replaced the spark plug, fuel lines and filter, air filter, took the muffler of and cleaned it and the exhaust port not much carbon. Any suggestions?

    It sounds to me like the carb needs to be overhauled.

    Thanks, you were correct. I took it to the shop and they put a rebuilt kit in the carb and it runs fine now.
