Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Your issue is going to be in the carb on the engine. When you blocked the intake, you basically chocked the engine allowing more fuel to get to the cylinders. Make sure that the choke is functioning correctly and nothing is blocking the butterfly on the carb open.
