Be very careful reinstalling the filter housing - the threads are fine threads and can be stripped easily. Don't forget the gasket for the adapter.

It could be a fuel pump issue, or sometimes this will happen if the gas tank vent is clogged/plugged. Dirt daubers are famous for getting in the vent line and plugging it up - then the fuel pump can't pull gas out of the tank fast enough to feed the engine. You can check this by simply leaving the fuel filler open and doing a test run - if the engine runs OK - you know the problem. Just get some wire and clean the vent line out.
Fuel pumps are pretty dependable, but check for loose fittings on the suction side - the pump will pull air before it pulls gas, and that can lead to fuel starvation. If you can, put a pressure gauge on the outlet side (between the fuel pump and the carb) and see what pressure your fuel pump is putting out. You should have 4-5 PSI if the pump is working correctly.
Hope this helps - good luck!
