A-4 won't rev

These guys are stating the obvious but likely your issue is not so obvious. Actually had the exact problem you are describing a few years ago. Engine started and went into gear. As soon as throttle would be applied, engine would stall.

The good news is that it was dirt and/or debris in the carburetor. The carb is pretty easy to remove with a couple of wrenches. Blow it out with some compressed air and some carb cleaner, reinstall and you should be good to go. These carburetors are pretty sensitive to dirt.

Good luck.

Ps- I always carried a spare rebuilt carburetor after that. Figured I could switch it out in a hurry if I had carb problems again.
