There are 2 potential problems -
1. Leaking spool on the control valve - rebuild the vale.
2. Cylinder blow-by. Disassemble piston and replace the seals.
To test if its the cylinder - retract the cylinders all the way... remove the hoses on the blind end (non rod end) of each cylinder, and again pull the valve to the retract position.
If fluid continues to pour out of the cylinder - the piston seal is damaged, and the affected cylinder must be repaired.
To test if the valve spool is faulty - disconnect the a and b ports just after the valve. Turn on the system and check for seepage from the disconnected lines (without moving the lever).

To temporarily fix you need to remove brake linkage to trans.If this works you need to get it to the dealer to replace park brake rod.

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.
