    Please be careful when comparing similar symptoms from different situations. Weeds clogging the jet pump intake would not cause an engine to quit, merely to rev without providing much thrust from the jet pump.

    Even when the symptoms are seemingly exactly the same as some other case, those same symptoms could be caused by different things. Slightly different symptoms could have completely different causes.

    There are several possible issues that could cause a Ficht engine to not run properly.

    Do you have another machine that you could swap parts with?
