Gas powered compressor dies at idle up

Hello,


I have a gas powered campbell hausfeld compressor with a Honda GX160 5.5hp motor that runs great except for that when it is in idle and the demand for air is needed it stalls when returning to full idle. It looks as if the throttle is being moved too quickly and floods out the carb leading to a stall.

Can this be adjusted?

Thanks!

Colin

clarification please

Are you saying it stalls on demand, or that it stalls after demand is met as it returns to idle?

Do you have an actual model number?

If not, is the throttle control a cable arrangement, or an air cylinder?
