    if you have to hold it at wot to start then its running to rich and flooding maybe, try turning the carb mixture screws all the way up tight, then 1 and 3/4 turns back out, hope this helps

    Did you replace the needle and seats when you did the rebuild? The engine is flooding while sitting...
