Another quick hint of advice on that motor. Ive found that if you screw the mixture screw in all the way and then back it out 1-1/2 turns it will pretty much always run right. Sometimes a little bit of tweaking is needed, but in most cases its not.

I will say that you've got a good little motor, but if you have never run one of them, your in for a little surprise as it has the power of most 5hp motors being a twin cylinder. Just remember its got points for the ignition, so keep them clean and shiny.
