I posted a while back about my 841. Had the starter rebuilt (I supplied the rebuild kit and the labor cost me $43).

Now it cranks, but runs really rough and dies, almost like it's flooding (lots of smoke and gas smell). I've got a steady fuel stream when I remove the plug under the carburetor. Checked the points and they are fine.

I rebuilt the carburetor last year as part of the restoration, but I'm wondering if there might be something clogged in there?
