Disconnect the fuel line for the filter at the carburetor. Gently blow into the line. If you feel resistance replace the filter and line. Most small engine shops will have what you need.

I take it by changing gaskets you also changed the fuel pump and metering diaphragm. Did you inspect the metering lever for wear and check metering lever height?

Get the manual for the specific model carburetor and download the manual labeled “Diaphragm Carburetors”.

Take the muffler off,and see if you can wiggle the cylinder.These blowers are bad about the cylinder head bolts coming loose,and causing a air leak.Hope this helps.
