ONE OF 'EM IS GOING AWAY. OR SOME MAJOR FRICTION IS HOLDING YOU BACK

CAN YOU PROLONG IT'S LIFE WITH A SQUIRT BOTTLE OF FUEL OR STARTER FLUID BEING SHOT INTO THE CARB WHILE IT IS RUNNING?

THIS MIGHT POINT TO. OR AWAY FROM.A FUEL ISSUE

RIGHT NOW. WILD GUESSING.I'D SAY ITS A CARB OR A VACUUM LEAK PROBLEM.I NEED YOU TO CONFIRM/ RULE THIS OUT WITH THE "SQUIRT TEST"

BEEN MONKEE-ING WITH THE SCREWS ON THE CARB BLINDLY. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO THROW THE BLAME ON YOUR EVIL BUDDIES.I DO, ALL OF THE TIME!

MAYBE WITH SOME REAL DATA AND HONEST EFFORT FROM YOUR END WE MIGHT GET YOU RUNNING

YOUR ANSWERS/ RESULTS?

YOU ARE WELCOME TO EXPAND ON THE WHOLE SITUATION IN GREAT DETAIL!

Do you have electronic ignition on this and what type of carb or carbs does it have? If it starts I would rule out ignition /compression but not altogther.
