    my engine seems to be starving for fuel :confused: is something wrong with the carb? ive tested the compression at my dads garage and it reads great, also this thing has very poor pulling strength, and only will run normally on half choke, and has very jerky startups. so what gives?

    What is the colour of the spark plug? I am thinking it is running too lean as the choke is needed to make it run.
