1) Change out the old fuel (not just adding fresh but pouring out the old and replacing it entirely) and check the engine oil.

2) Check muffler and/or spark arrestor screen for restrictions.

3) Clean and reinstall spark plug (check gap).

4) Replace inlet screen INSIDE the carb. (It is located directly under the inlet needle.)

Try each of these as needed.
Hope this helps!

TAILGATE


Probably needs new stays/supports/arms, as I think the fluid leaks out of them gradually and you can't get them refilled so far as I know.
Happened to a friend's ancient Nissan Bluebird Diesel tailgate and he managed to get new stay/support/arms from a Scrapdealer at a very reasonable price. Bit of a problem fitting the new ones but managed in the end and now the tailgate stays up no problem.
