Xp 787 won't run for shit
Ok here's the deal. My xp 787 won't run. I took it out one day after cleaning the carbs and hooking the vts back up and since then it won't run. It sputters but that's about it. Here's a list of what I have done so far and some of the things I have found.
New voltage regulator
Fuel mixture is definateley too richlike 30:1
Cleaned and thoroughly inspected carbs - even tried a new set
Compression 147 on both
Has Spark but seems week on both
Checked all fuses
Definateley getting fuel
Kind of wants to backfire out of the intake
When I put my finger in the intake hole on the rear cyl. I found metal shavings
Trying to start it without the air filters (shouldn't make a difference but ya never know)
I'm at a loss - any help would be greatly Apprieciated.

+1 on a rotary valve problem, spitting out of the carb is a number one sign of rv failure.
oh yeah..metal shavings..
