yeah. thats what I'm gonna try to do. Because I'm at a loss as to what is causing it run this way. It fires right up no problem, and idles till I shut it off. I've adjusted the carb needle, checked my wiring, disconnected the kill switch, replaced the spark plug boot, checked the exhaust for blockage, and it still is labored running and acceleration. So hopefully this weekend I can get in touch with him.
