Check the muffler and/or spark arrestor screen in the muffler outlet pipe and also the engine's exhaust port behind the muffler. These are prone to carbon-clogging and the engine cannot "BREATHE" enough to reach full throttle. If all-clear in the muffler, go back in the carb and locate the inlet screen directly opposite of the inlet needle. Carefully pull it out with a pick and hold it up to a light source. If you cannot see thru it, replace it. This is another, (less) common area of obstruction.
Hope this helps,

sounds like it has leaking crankshaft seals...or I have had them break a ring and score piston and cylinder...you can verify this by removing muffler and checking piston through there ...if no scores, I would think seals are faulty...

There is a small diaphragm inside the carburetor that uses the intake pulse from the engine and the rise and fall of air pressure to pump the fuel. Here is how it all works. The pulse passage is very important and is fairly small, going from a hole in the carb to a hole in the carburetor adapter to a small hole in the engines' cylinder. Of course though, the pulse signal is created by the engine.
You need to check the condition of your in-tank fuel filter, the fuel lines and the carburetor itself. The small parts in the carb tend to dry out over time and cease to function. Gasket and diaphragm kits and complete rebuild kits for the carbs are available. Here is how they work.

I had same problem with my blower that was several years old and had always run great. Air filter was clean so I changed spark plug and it ran like new again for $2.50:-)
