    I would check the reed valve unit. as it is probably stuck or jammed open or closed somehow.

    Well one can plug the vent and then plug the carb and exhaust. Then wash the heck out of it. But it isn't a big deal to flush out the engine when done and oil it back up OK. We used to have engines...
