The most likely problem is the low speed jet in the carburetor is clogged with old fuel varnish. This jet has the smallest oriface in the carburetor and is the first to clog. Because it is so small and difficult to clean I recommend replacement and cleaning the rest of the fuel passages along with fresh fuel in the gas tank.

Hey timoto, sorry about getting back so late. I changed my jets and it runs and idles like it should. Thanks a lot. I reckon I’m going to learn how to adjust the valves. It backfires.

Good to hear the problem is fixed. Please leave a five star rating so that I can get credit for assisting you.
