Hi and welcome! Is this a normally aspirated engine or fuel injected?

its carbureted also has a mechanical fuel pump
The reason I asked that question is the first thought that ran through my head as I read your post and that was that the bowl is drying up.

That said, there are a multitude of issues within the carb that could cause this problem and with that said, a good cleaning or rebuild might be the order of the day.
