Have you drained the tank and filled it with fresh gas? I run at least 89 octane. Among all the other suggestions made here, you also might pull the plugs and see if they show signs of running lean, or rich. I doubt yours will be as clean as in this picture- but a white residue is often a sign you're running lean, in which case running at 1/2 choke would make the mixture richer.
The plugs were black from too much fuel.
Fresh gas this spring.
It has been suggested that a needle popped out.
Going to take the tops off to see if one did.
Hopefully it's that simple.
Thanks for your input, appreciate any help
I find it is usually just easier to change the main and pilot jets every few years to avoid issues like this. Even with stabilizer and some seafoam each year.
I just fired mine up after a couple years last night with clean carbs and it spit, sputtered for a few miles with all new and carb cleaner. Running much better after a few laps around the neighborhood:-)
Sure I thrilled the neighbors.
