Re: Engine almost stalling then recovering
Fuel, spark, air. Most responses think fuel, but you said the carb was clean. Do you have an inline fuel filter between pump and carb? If so, replace it. Can you put a fuel line bulb pump (like on an outboard) after the main fuel filter, before the pump? If you can, then can you keep it from stalling by pumping the bulb? This is now I discovered my fuel pump was weak and stalling intermittently. If it is not the carb, filter or pump you need to go tank diving, or pumping. Get a totally clean tank with fresh gas and then you can rule out fuel. Next spark.
