You might be on to something there. I really thought Tom had it nailed,
but there is no filter. There is no petcock on this blower either. The
Sears manual lists cleaning the fuel line as one possible solution for
erratic running. (I don't quite get that,, but who knows.) It feels
like 40 below right now and I don't want to bring the blower inside to
work on a gas lie so I'll have to wait for a break in the weather to
check things out. (It's snowing now too.) I'll give the needle valve a
good cleaning .
Thanks a ton
the vent on the fuel cap is clogged maybe with snow and ice...
same thing happend to me..

I had thought of that earlier and I tried running it after it had
stalled out with the cap right off of it (Falling off loose.) and it
had no effect so I discounted a clogged cap.
Thanks again Mark

I want to thank Tom and Dave
I drained the tank, dropped the carb bowl and removed the needle valve.
Gave it a good blast of air (popped the gas tank lid right off) (Scared
myself (O: ) re assembled everything and pored a bout a half pint
into the tank and she ran perfectly. So I'd say the problem is solved.
I think the only thing I did wrong was not having disconnected the fuel
line at the tank because that way I would have expelled whatever it was
right out the end of the line. As it is I would bet money that I have a
glob of something in the tank waiting to go back down the line.
Another day perhaps!!
Thanks again case closed.
