Good job Kyle. Mud daubers caused my camper AC to be very loud this summer.

I have the same gator HPX. I had a similar problem a few years back. I traced it down to leaking intake manifold gasket. Would suck air sometimes creating a stumble upon acceleration (this was around 1800 hrs). Change fuel filter often as well. Also I had to change the needle valves from wear at one point. These engines can be very finicky.
