   Hey Kury, maybe you bung hole is pluged up :)

 If you are having fuel flow problems, you need to make sure
 the fuel vent to the tank is not pluged and is large enough.
 If you get a vacume in the tank, no fuel pump will be able
 to pull the fuel out of the tank. 

 In earlier notes you said it ran OK at full power for a while
 and then started cutting out.  If you don't get enough air
 into the tank then this might be a cause.
