    Look for filters in the banjo fittings on the fuel lines

    Random suggestion:
    Check to see if the airfilter or air hoses are collapsing when under load.

    mechanical lift pump? ...
    there'll be a gauze filter in there or diaphragm could be weak / on its way out or the lever operating the pump off the cam could be worn and not giving a full / proper stroke and not supplying enough fuel under heavy load
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    the filters Ian is talking about are actually in the banjo bolts and tiny ... you won't see them unless you strip the unions

    Hydraulic pick up strainer blocked .... pick up pipe to pump gone soft and collapsing
