    Finally figured out why the motor would either idle or race when using the throttle but was fine when operating the carb lever. I had the throttle linkage in the wrong hole on the carburetor. I also pulled the gas tank and cleaned it out. Put new fuel line and filter on. Started to fill tank only to have gas pouring on my driveway. Took apart again and found the tank fitting had come off so I bonded it on put everything back again and it seems good now as far as no gas leaks. Fresh gas did not make it run any better so I took the top of the carb off and adjusted the float and cleaned what I could. After I got carb cleaner out of my eye I started it up and it runs a little better. I would say I'm about 85% happy with how it runs.
