    Could these issues have been the problem?

    I have a 97 sl 1050, new top end by prevous owner, still didnt run right, had no throttle response or power.

    Here's what I found.......bad fuel, fuel pump diaphrams about to tear, carbs were pretty clean though, spark plug gap was .036,.037 on all three and the caps were almost falling off loose.

    compression is 120 accross all 3....

    This has all been resolved, do you think those issues would have been the problem with it running right?

    It still doesn't have any throttle response on the trailer, I guess it's gonna need carb kits.

    If the diaphragms were bad, and it had old, stale gas, I'm sure they do need rebuilt.
