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

Thanks,it's way more out than that!The guy told me he cleaned the carb(it was clean)I think he may have tried to tune it.:duh:
It still does the same thing!!!:banghead3
Fuel is flowing great out of the tank.It was running great when parked a year or two ago.I bought 2 new front wheels and an air filter today,i want to use this thing!
The adjusting needle rotted in half!I'm getting a new one in the morning.
