... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.
