Hello Scott. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. The problem you are describing could be caused by either your carburetor being too lean, or you may have a partially sheared flywheel key. Check your flywheel key first, then you and I can continue from here. Thanks!

Good morning Scott. Thanks for letting me know. We can definitely wait, and continue at a later date. I truly hope all goes well for your father in law, and your family. You can wait until your engine is running, before leaving a rating.
