    So no carb cleaning, fuel lines or fuel valve yet?
    Stock carb jetting and settings?
    How many turns on the high?

    OOps, I didn't catch your adjustments.
    My guess is you're gurgling due to a rich setting in the lows.
    Lean with an extra turn out points to fuel supply issue(s).

    These are general useage shots, not plug chops. This is still just the first 56 hours after rebuild, so I have been going easy on it. Mostly tooling around at about 35MPH (4200 RPM or less) with a few high speed runs thrown in just becasue I am inpatient. So If I was rich on the lows I would think it would show rich after idleing in. I dont know.

    I read somewhere that I might need to go up in the jet size when switching to premix?????

    Is there a way to test fuel pressure out of the pump?

    Like Al said.... needs more fuel for sure, BUT, I think you're already in trouble.
    Am I reading this correct as in these are new pistons?
    If so, I think you have some (or had some) foreign debri floating around in there. See pic.... that scares me!!!

    That was from the first start after I replace the mag piston for the second time. I thought I got it all out (flushed the cylinder with solvent and oiled it down. But after I fired it the fist time, Ran on a hose for 1 minute and pulled the heads again and found a piece of metal (looked like ring material sitting on the top of the piston. 3 little nicks from that. I will probablt replace that piston again over the winter, but I hope it will be fine for now. I know that I got all the pieces of Piston # 2 out now .

    Think it will last. i know I read somewhere about deisleing (sp) around high spots on piston or heads. My heads all have spots from where the previous owner blew this engine. I polished them off, but not perfectly. so they will probably need replaced as well
