    :blob3: every now and then the vent in the gas cap will get a little crappy and will hamper the way the blower runs you can check by clearly taking off the cap while running. T

    About your loss of power in your 7000 be sure to check the port
    to the muffler. Carbon seems to be a real problem in this equipment. Anytime I have had a problem with power loss that's where the problem is found. Good luck

    I dont have a 7000 , wish I did, a few of my friend s do and they love them , no problems that I have heard of ..

    I have the older EB431's and have been pretty happy with them..( until I get my hands on a 7000 LOL ) I had a similar problem with power loss though... What had happend with one of them was the gas filter... The other one I had tried to use an air filter oil by K & N instead of just using motor oil and I guess it was too thick for the setup and caused some serious power loss.. I was ready to throw the thing out, untilll I cleaned and reoild the filter and it was back to normal... Wierd..
