The fuel filter is in the tank, to get it out you need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove it also change the hose going into the tank and into the carburetor the filter costs $2.00 and the hose a Dollar. hope this helps.

Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

Sounds as if you have all the variables to make it go but, I'd suspect that either the tank filter is plugged or there is an inline gas filter that is plugged to a point it's only allowing a small amount of fuel (gas) to enter the carb. It's not uncommon after running and engine bone dry to pick up a bunch af rusty sediment in the bottom of the tank. the filters do their job but end up starving the engine of gas. There is a bit that's running through and after sitting for a few minutes the carb floats fill up and the motorcycle operated normally till the gas in the float bowls runs out and the engine dies.

Fuel filter is usually on the end of the "fuel finder" hose inside the tank. The tank vent is USUALLY a small hole in the tank cap.

OFTEN these problems are caused by the diaphram in the fuel pump going bad, or the check valves if it has sat with fuel in it. The diaphram is in the carbureator and works from the vacuum pulses . The check valves are tiny flappers. If you have the problem, a carb rebuild kit is the fix.
