Have you cleaned the carburetor? My W350 did the same and it was the carburetor the whole time.

No return line necessary with 5-7 psi electric fuel pump. Rebuild the carburetor, check the needle and seat when rebuilding probably not maintaining fuel level Or purchase a re-manufactured if you can't rebuild.

brand new carburetor. fuel pump pressure is maximum 9 psi. pump is about 20 inches from fuel tank.
