Clogged main jet, or . . . diaphragm air leak (i.e., hole, tear, or improper sealing. Probably, improer sealing, since you've been dorking with the carb. Hard to get that diaphragm to stay in its groove. I think a standard main jet is 148; oughta work, at least beyone 3000 rpm.).
Check the assembly of the needle and slide, etc.; could be a problem there.

General rule of troubleshooting is look at what you did last! Maybe the carb diaphragm (rubber deal on the slide) is not seated right or has a hole. My guess is that the main jet is too big. Do you have the problem at greater than 1/2 - 3/4 throttle?

It sounds like the jet isn't big enough to me..
