It's a funny thing I seem to run up against in the forum a lot, people not sure if their motor is turning over or not. I'm not sure if this is the case here, or if it's just dying when he pulls the clutch in as you asked??????
Reading "Doesn't put put put" make me think its not turning over, so look at clutch. Then again, if it IS turning over and just not firing, and that's what he means by "Doesnt put put put" then we should move past the clutch... So hard to help through the internet sometimes.....
Please post back again and let us know better what is happening and we'll try to help you out. Which scenario do you have:
1) motor doesnt turn over when you release the clutch (clutch issue)
2) motor wont idle when you pull in the clutch (probably carb or ignition issue)
