As soon as i stopped reving it cut out. I played around with the mixture screw which led to it firing in the first place then when i played with mixture screw again it would not fire. Im thinking now more on a fuel issue than mechanical. It started and thats a huge step in the right direction.
Did you notice any smoke at all, or a gassy smell once it fired up?
yes and yes. It smoked like crazy at first. But then it calmed down. Does this mean trouble?
