Hi Charles and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the burn color of the sparkplug tips and determine if the mix is rich, lean or just right;
  • • verify no air and/or vacuum leak(s).
