Check the timing, clean the carbs, check the compression, make sure the gas is fresh, run the old stand by seafoam through it and let us know if it made any difference at all. You want to do the easy stuff before you dig deeper.

Sounds like you need to clean your carbs out... sounds like the low speed jet is partially clogged / plugged.

What would clog a jet on a carb?

dirt in fuel, varnish from old fuel, piece of hose that came off several things.

Even if you store it with seafoam in in it?

It's possible...

It kind of depends on if there was some buildup prior to storing it with seafoam, or if there's gunk in the carbs (which seafoam wouldn't do too much for).

That is what was wrong with my 25hp, after I bought new fuel line, new gas tank, rebuilt fuel pump... all it needed was a shot of air through the jet... doh! Easy fix, I would measure how far the jet is from "all the way tight" - I put tape on screwdriver and then count the turns, its a bit easier to keep track for me wink

Then take an air compressor and give it a shot or two of air. Worked perfect for me. Good luck.

Is there a diaphragm in the carb?... I don't recall seeing one in the ones I did, but there could be a combo carb/fuel pump I guess.

I do recall needing a new daiphragm in my Dad's motor when I was young, but I can't recall any more than that. Glad its working again for you!

No, I don't believe there's a diaphragm in the carb.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
