Similar thing happened to me.... sounds to me like a fuel draw issue.... the most likely culprit is a non sealed carb. Loosen your carb nut and check to see if the o-rings are seated properly and make sure they are still soft, sometimes they harden up from the high engine temps.... if they are too hard when you push the carb down into the bore.. the o-rings will not seal properly and suck air in around the carb neck causeing low fuel draw...... pick up a few at canadian tire for cheap.. or you local hardware store... i think you will find this is the problem,,,, and be sure to push down hard on the carb while tightening the carb retaining bolt, this will ensure a good seal.

I did notice that one of the carb bolts fell out. There is 2 of them, 1 on each side. I also have a new o-ring on it. The missing bolt did not affect anything before, it's been missing for a while with no engine problems. It sounds wierd, but it happened. Anyway, when I tried a new bolt, I discovered that the threads have been stripped out of that side of the carb. I was also wondering if the o-ring is too big since it pushes the carb up a bit higher than the last ring did.

Can we get a pic of this engine.... sounds very strange to have 2 carb bolts... usually there is just one bolt on the left side of the engine that draws a cam lock settup into the carb neck......
But anyway try this........ Plug the exuast with something...kleenex or what ever then open your throttle full open.... put your finger over the carb as to choke it.... turn the prop over by hand..about one revolution per second..... and see if the fuel is starting to come up the fuel line..... if it is... just before it gets to the carb... stop turning the prop and see if the fuel heads back to the tank... if so you DO have a leak.... if the fuel doesnt even come up... theres a leak...... also some questions that should be asked is did you put a new glow plug in? and... did you take the low speed mixture screw out when you cleaned the engine... if you did, you simply may have the low speed needle set way to lean...preventing the engine to transtion to the higher rpms..... just a thought.

Hi Warbird,

Could the clunk be stuck foreward in the tank?

Take care,
Have fun,
