You need to remove and completely disassemble the carb. It sounds like the main jet is stopped up or the slide is not operating as it should. If it's been sitting for that long, a carb overhaul is probably what it needs.

Good Luck

Remove the carb soak in carb cleaner, **** out small bleed holes with a wire from a wire brush etc. One of the passageways is still clogged, or the float is sticking.

Missfiring, banging on over run,starts after about 10 minutes


Weak or failing ignition coil and/or module will cause this, as will a flooding carb.
