Briggs and Stratton Engine Surges and dies after 5 minutes of loa

I have an Elite pressure washer, mdl 020251 with a B&S 7.0 HP OHV engine. I have tried everything I can think of on this beast. It has worked good in the past but now once you load the washer after about 5 minutes the engine starts surging and then dies. I have changed the fuel, cleaned out the carb, checked for fuel flow, checked the plug, you name it with no luck. I am looking for ideas. It does not have a dip stick, just the fill plugs for oil, how full should it be? To the top or bottom of the fill hole? Could that be causing an issue with the governor? It makes no sense to me. Any help would be appreciated.

There should be what looks like an adjusting screw in the side of the carburator,it's not it is the jet.if you unscrew it and look into the end of it,there is a tiny hole in the end.spray some carburator cleaner into the hole,it squrt out of the holes in the side,if not it is plugged up.that hole has to be clean so that the engine gets the proper amout of fuel while careful when cleaning this hole out,if you try to drill it out the motor will not run right.hope this helped,let me know.......................

On B&S OHV it is always wise to verify the valve clearance is within specification. Correct setting should be in your engine manual or you can get it at Good luck.
