    Hi guys,I need your help.I been working on this machine for a while now and just can't seem to find the problem.It will not accelerate to high rpms, but will idle .When I spray gas in through the carb venturi with the throttle wide open, it floods the engine to where it almost dies.
    What I've done so far is,
    put new carb kit in,metering lever is set right, changed all fuel lines, compression is good, 125lbs. checked the muffler and cylinder wall, new fuel, new plug,checked fuel cap venting, carb settings at 1.5 turns start up.cleaned the carb and blew it out with compress air several times. I at my witts end on this one. Any help as to what to do next, I sure would appreciate it. Thanks
