1979 model.I picked it up today,has fuel,spark and compression.If i give a squirt of st. fluid it fires right up.The carb is clean,fuel lines good ect...It runs for a few seconds and shuts off.Fuel flows out of the the tank fine too.Any idea's?Also,how many turns out should the screw be on top of the carb?Thanks

had the same thing happen to me, turn the screw out 2 turns, it should start and run after that. With it running turn it in until it starts to die, then open it up a little.
Well, if it's already out too much, just turn in in until it lightly seats, then turn it out 2 turns and tune it from there.
The float might not be adjusted right, not letting enough gas into the carb. Also, make sure your fuel shut-off vavle is on the "on" position.
