Surprise!  its governor hunting.
With the choke halfway on it runs fine.
It has the Nikki One-Barrel Carburetor.
It runs the same whether the Idle Fuel Adjusting Screw is all the way in or all the way out"holding it in my hand"
and it still runs the same with the Passage Cover and Gasket removed!?
LOL what in the hell am i missing?

Mine does that to, I haven't got it fixed, but I think I need to clean out the idle passages. (I have taken the screw out and sprayed carb cleaner in it, and it cleaned it out pretty good on my Onan CCK)

i think i've got it figured out.
The tip of the idle fuel adjustment screw is broken off in the carb.
And wedged in tight!!

Any ideas on how to get it out ?

i did try that! LOL

i got it out and fixed. Happy Happy Happy!

Now how i got it out.

Ground the sharp end off a plastic push pin so it is flat .

Sand the wire down to just fit in the hole. "you will need to make sure that its the same size from tip to the plastic".

Holed the  plastic part of the push pin with needle nose pliers and hold over hole and squeeze the pin in with channel lock pliers. "If the plastic breaks holed the wire"
