    Check all of your choke and throttle cables to make sure they havent slipped. Sometimes they can slip and interfere with e/o. Other than that I would say It sounds like a carb problem. AndI hate to give a broad answer like that, but I think that is it.

    thanks NCstripeKing. I took off the carb and cleaned it out. I didn't see any water but a few specks of crud. Running fine now. Seems like it's missing a bit, but it's running.
