Question about Electrical Supplies
The engine was skipping or sputtering on the high side when running. removed fuel hoses and check for cracks. Replace fuel filter. Took spark plugs out to to check gap, nice and light brown they were replaced two years ago. Removed fuel tank and check air filter. Drained fuel and replaced with fresh, and added fuel treatment. It was idling great now it goes right up to high speed.Idle switch doesn't seem to be working when engaging.

I just want you to try this.
Take the air filter off
clean the carb bowl.
Take carb cleaner and spray directly into carb.
Check the gas lines that they are clear.
The problem may be that the carburetor is may be blocked up not letting fuel get through. Sometimes they are very hard to clean and get them to run correct, you need to use a magnifying glass and remove the jest and look at the passages closely, Or get your engine model numbers and id and go price a carburetor. Thats is the best fix.
Thanx for using fixya.
Hope it works.
Have a nice day.

What brand of engine & horsepower is it?Also about how long was it stored or last time it was run? The reason I ask is if it was stored with gas in it & a fuel stabilizer wasn't added to it,your primary jet is plugged in the carburetor(reason it will only run while choked).

ALWAYS CHECK THE POINTS!!! 20 years operating this engine and you'd think I would know better. The points were severely pitted. Spec said .020 but actual is .013. The cold weather had me suspecting a carb problem. DOH!

Sounds like you missed the low speed jets when you cleaned the carb. They are very small holes and sometimes are behind a plug either rubber or brass.
