Hello, sounds like it could be an air leak.Is there any play at the crank ends? Are the oil seals wet? Is the fuel filter connected?. maybe try to adjust the carb,open the low speed 1/2 turn. A special tool is need but you may be able to make one. You can try tapping a piece of 3/16 copper tubing onto the screw.

Also, the carb adapter could be loose or cracked. if loose the gasket could be torn.

I have the spline tool to adjust the Hi and Low, but it's doing the same stuff with a brand new carb. I sealed the carb intake gasket with some grey permatex thinking the gasket was the issue. It still runs the same

You there?
Expert:  Vince O. replied 7 months ago.

Did you permatex the gasket before or after new carb was installed?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Before I installed the new carb I ran a small bead around both sides of the gasket. I have since removed the carb to make sure I didn't clog any ports. Everything looked good
Expert:  Vince O. replied 7 months ago.

open both screws a 1/2 turn or more on the new carb to see if any difference. Did you check for crank wobble and wet seals? Are the 4 screws that hold cyl to c/case tight ?
