the spark plug was the biggest issue with running.
Thanks for the info. I bolted on the new carb, fuel lines, and fuel filters today and it fired right up and idled pretty good. It did start revving on its own a bit but I'm sure the new carb just needs tuned. I will go ahead and replace the spark plug regardless. One other thing I noticed is that it only runs with the choke half opened. If it's fully opened or fully closed it dies immediately. Is that normal?
