    Fix the head gasket first. Install a new plug and see what happens. Try turning in your idle screw a few turns to see it that helps. It sounds like you have a fuel fouled plug. If fuel is dripping from the carb you need to address that issue too. The leak could be a sticking or miss adjusted float, bad needle & seat or improper mounting angle.

    How do you know the head gasket is bad? Normally when they give out you will have a fast idle when the clutch is pulled in.

    air leak. make sure carbs mounted properly.

    blown head gasket will always make it run funny.
