Besides checking your fuel filter, the bowl on the carburetor, and the
ignition coil, also make sure the vent line for the gas tank is open and
free flowing.
I had a problem once due to wax blocking the vent after I didn't do a good
enough job of buffing. I understand that spider nests in the vent line are a
semi-common problem.
