Hi,
Have this eng. was v low on compression, changed pistons, rings. 85lbs. now in each. engine starts and runs but loses steam within 5 sec. diminishes to stop right away. good fuel and new filter w/elect fuel pump. adjusted carb float down 1/8" to stop possible flooding. gapped newly blasted plugs to .25 as specs. engine drives a hyd pump for a crack seal melter. any ideas I haven't thought of.
thanks
Jim

i'd have to agree with sonny on this one but i would suggest going for a full rebuild on the carb since if the main jet is plugged more than likely the rest of the carb is in need of a good cleaning too.
