I have 2 issues presently I hope someone has answers to. 1) engine dies when throttle accelerated 2) when engaging into gear engine dies Any great wisdom out there to help? Thanks

Hi Joe:
Don't know about the wisdom bit, but Old Dude experience I've got some of.
Some info about the vehicle would help but here's something to start with.
When you accelerate throttle, you provide more air which creates a lean condition, so they invented accelerator pumps that squirt extra gas into the venturi to prevent the stall.

I'd start out by draining and cleaning the carb. Use air and gently blow out all of the bits. Some spray carb cleaner can help, and products like "sea foam" are great for removing nasties.

Keep me advised by using the "comment" section and I'll do what I can as things evolve.

Probably gunk or carbon build-up. See if Seafoam works for you, do a full engine treatment. You can find out how to do it on Youtube follow the links.
