    I have an old multiquip 60L upright rammer that has a new motor. Picked it up from a guy that hasnt used it in a while so it went cheap. I already cleaned the fuel system. It just isnt running right. For starters the clutch if it even has one doesnt appear to be releasing so once you pull hang on. Second which I think is the issue with the clutch is it doesnt idle it only runs. Third it doesnt appear to be running at top RPM. I havent checked but it seems like it is a few blows short per second. Lastly when it gets going it gets real hot after about 5 minutes and shuts off. It wont restart till it cools a little.

    Anyone have experience with one of these. I dont know when they started making these, but this one is pretty old. It seems pretty logical that it is all carb adjustment issues, but I cant get it dialed in.

    Any suggestions or experience? It doesnt have to be perfect since it would only be used once in a while, but it should be safe. Thanks
