well got 10 gall. of freah gas in the gen. tgank. fired up, nope no go. pulled the plugs, dirty. got em cleaned up. re-gap, they were way out. refired, you bet, purred like a kitten. ran for 2 hrs then put a big load to it, started losing power then speed up over and over again. took off all load. same thing. let it cool down. fired up, same thing, taped on fuel filter started to work again then back to its thing. pulled filter blew it out, played with it and now runs good. didn't see ahything come out of filter. so letting it rest overnite and see what happens in morning. well at least I know it still runs.

Might just be wise to buy a new filter, it doesn't take much to block those pleated paper jobs.

Likely causes are: there is still some varnish/crud in the carb or the carb needs adjustment for more fuel under load. Not sure how/if that is possible to adjust. Never had to mess with mine.

You might want to try the old Seafoam trick; unhook the gas line and run it into a gallon can of gas with a full bottle of Seafoam in it, and let the gennie run on that mix for a while. It will clean that varnish out of the carb lickity-split.
