My el diablo keeps stalling on me. I changed out the fuel filter and that did not work. You can see the fuel filling in the filter and then it stops about 3/4 to the top. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Hard to say....
Doubt it’s the fuel filter
Could be fuel pump
Spark plugs
Could also be waste tank overflow/ engine cut switch stuck
Take the air filter off and splash some petrol down the carb
For diagnosis Can also put some petrol in a trigger bottle to keep the engine running for a few seconds
If it runs then it’s a fuel supply issue, likely fuel pump??

If it still doesn’t run probably spark related
Check tank switch
Check spark
Replace spark plugs anyway they’re easy and cheap
