I've had the carb get clogged, and i had to floor it, and ride the clutch to get it to move, but if i let off, the motor would bogg down from being under load, and cut off. not sure. Oh, also make sure his points are still opening and closing. if they dizzy shaft wore them out, it will do that as well. I had that happen to me. i was driving, and it started backfiring, and started loosing power. kept driving, (trying to get home), and eventually, i was just riding the hell out of the clutch, because if it were under load (similar to the above carb issue), the motor would die. eventually, it wouldn't start at all, lol. this was when i had the turbo motor together. at the time, i thought i finally lost compression of somethng, lol. new set of points, and i was back on the road, lol.

I talked with Callahan, And that's what it sounds to me like. Carb issue or maybe points. Anyone know how to get in touch with Kenny, cause he's in Lagrange, right? I won't be coming back from my trip til Sunday evening.
