The exhaust pressure is only meant to supplement the engine vacuum that is the primary draw of fuel into the carb. Still, worth cleaning and maintaining.

Thanks for the help fellas. I can get it to start now. It idles high then dies.

So i'm making progress.

I think there might be something to the exhaust theroy. I HAVE to blow into that line to get it started. Even if i had it running only moments before.

I feel better now cause i'm getting more sure its nothing serious just a bunch of little stuff.

Tomorrow I'll go to the hobby shop in holland and get heat gun and some lower nitro fuel. I'm done with the place in Muskegon, no trust anymore.

What temp range should i look for on the heat gun?
I plan on running this thing indoors till spring, so it should be around 60 degree ambient.

Tighten all your carb screws down and reset them to factory defaults. You're running very lean if its behaving in the manner described. Exhaust pressure will mask a lean condition.

How does that little white plastic insert effect my tuning. The manual pictures show it in place so i put it there, but it cuts down the intake size by 60% or so.

Also i found a troubleshooting guide and it said to take out the plug and spin the flywheel by hand, it should be tight on the top of the stroke, and it is...so yay for that.
