Hi everyone,

Just came in from cleaning out the driveway and engine started acting up. It's a tech 8hp hm80. When it's there just running waiting to get some work, idles real well (high and low setting) but once it gets into the snow it sounds and does the same thing as when I would run out of gas. Tank is full and yes I did do the magic gas cap trick. Even with the cap off, it does the same thing. I have fresh supreme gas that I bought yesterday. Possible that it could all come from the governor?

I would highly doubt the governor unless someone has touched it lately. More than likely a good carb cleaning or adjustment is needed and replacing the spark plug first wouldn't hurt.
