Question about Garden
Wanted to replace filter and was given this one as generic but looks very different from the one currently on my tractor.
If it fits it should work but if it doesn't fit don't try to use it.Different makes use different colors but if it is shaped differently don't use it.

You probably need to rinse the fuel tank out, To check if this will solve your problem disconnect the fuel line from fuel tank going to the fuel filter, remove gas cap and blow air thru line back into tank. This should clear any sediment impeding fuel flow temporarily. Reconnect line and start motor. If it runs longer than it has been then your fuel tank is in need of cleaning.

Is your fuel pump working? are you getting fuel to the carb?
1. check for spark
2. check for compression in all cylinders
3. check carb (if it's been a long time since it was last started, you will need to just take the carb apart and clean it or get a carb rebuild kit. rebuild kit is easiest route and once you do that, you are done fussing with it.
4. Diagnose the problem.
a. try starting fluid directly into the carb. If it fires up then quits you have a fuel delivery problem. Once you figure out that, you can trace the problem back from the motor to the tank.
5. If you don't have any spark, try new plugs, then try new wires, then start going over your electrical system

Typically a surge is caused by a lean condition. I'd say the float is set to low and this is causing the engine to lean out & when you apply the choke it richens it back up.and the surge stops.

Fuel mixture is wrong - your carb needs cleaning - specifically the jet.
At idle - it works fine - but under load it bogs down because the demand for fuel is increased... but not delivered.
