Yes, are you sure this carb fits the RS EHO 35?
The carb works great on mine. So were you saying the pedals do spin under engine power???

Only when the clutch engages just over idle. Everything works fine once the
engine is warmed up. Check that, no the bicycle pedals do not engage
because there are two independent freewheels. That's the beauty of
the concept. With the engine off or running the bicycle pedals do not
move. I thought you were talking about the engine crank.

What I'm asking is when the bike is moving under engine power does the pedals move? Just making sure I'm envivisioning this right. My Staton Inc shift kit uses double freewheels unlike the other shift kits which only use one.

No, the pedals do not move under engine power. The pedals are on their own
independent freewheel. You can assist the engine power by pedaling at
any time, say up a hill or from a standstill. With two free wheels you've
got two independent power systems, the engine and your bicycle
pedals.
