Found the problem - after changing out the very clean racor filter, and re-bleeding - turned out that it was the transmission not going all the way into forward. I noticed that the propeller shaft turned faster in reverse, than in forward, and the engine sounded / worked better. The transmission shifter pulls back for forward, and although the cable was pulling teh lever back, it was pulling it back and up as well - because of the cable mount / angle.
When I push the transmission lever, with my hand, it clunks into gear and immediately goes faster. I jmoved teh cable mount a little lower, so it pulls more back , than back and up, and it helped some, but I still have to fine tune it. Now, when I shift into forward, it takes a few seconds of revving up, before it clunks, and goes hard into forward. I think I need to play around with the cable adjustments.
At least I know what the problem is, and I learned alot about the fuel system!
