After those two suggestions I'm lost sorry if they don't help.
Thanks Deacon and all who have responded,...
plug is wet and smells like gas,...
don't know how to check or seal the intake, but I'll have a look,...
is the intake where the carb mounts to the pipe from the engine,>>>?

Norman suggested I close my plug gap to .020 and use a fuel mix of 32:1,...
I'll let ya all know,...
