Already checked the gaps! They are new plugs in them already since I've replaced everything trying to find the original problem. I definitely think it's a fuel/carb issue so now I've solved the fuel problem let's see if the carbs act right.

well just a different view of what i see happening .. with the epa tightening up on regulations they have forced the companies to use carbs that are extremely on the lean side to help cut down on polution...
mix that with a fuel that contains inconsistent mixtures of ethanol you get even a leaner burn.. ethanol will lean out the air fuel mixture in itself. not by much but a little ...
so mix the 2 lean applications and you will get lean running equipment which will run erradic at wot ..
