Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initiall, is the idle too high? ...or would not idle and die? ...but would it run if the throttle is 'played'?

Still, let's review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • carefully remove the spark plug;
  • • check the burn color of the ceramic to the tip;
  • • determine if black/sooty;
  • • or very light brown to almost whitish.

The above would determine the air/fuel mix and even for a vacuum or an air leak.
