Let at least 1 gallon of fuel flow freely from the hose removed from the carburetor. If it slows down at all it may be caused by the gas cap vent. Loosen the cap and see if it speeds up. See the 2 holes on the bottom (inside) of the gas cap, those are the vents. Shake the cap empty of gas, cover one hole with a finger and blow thru the other, (Yuck, you can wipe it off with a prep pad). You should not be able to blow thru. Now, try to suck thru, there should be no resistance, allowing the tank to vent. If the tank doesn't vent it creates a vacuum and eventually the fuel doesn't flow. When the motor runs bad and dies, the tank will eventually loose the vacuum and restart.
Will the RPM's increase as it shuts off?
