Re: Engine almost stalling then recovering

It could be the carb float angle. Often when rebuilding a simple carb such as this, the float bracket is inadvertently bent. This can lead to starving, because the fuel level in the bowl is too low. Here's a youtube vid showing it. The carb is from an outboard, but the function is the same.
