I know it's a late reply, but I'm new to the forum and definitely willing to filehost if it means spreading the knowledge. PM me and we'll set it up.

As for as the engine goes, I HIGHLY recommend Roach's videos. He did an outstanding job, and makes everything crystal clear.

Spockster Welcome to the forum!

Ok, I'll bite.

Your left carb has a stuck float or it's passing gas through the vacuum line on the left carb. It's running on one cylinder, so it's only got half power, or less really.

1. try tapping on the carb bowl to free the float
2. check the vacuum line to see if there's gas in it

After the fuel problem is fixed, drain the oil since it's probably full of gas, I wouldn't run it with that much gas in the crankcase.
