Got it installed and am trying to break it in but when i start it it idles just fine.And then when i remove my glow plug igniter it dies instantly. any clues? i am using the glow plug called for and even tried another.

    it could be the low speed screw... they are usely at the end of the carb... On most engines it needs to be flush with the carb...

    get a new plug and its probably a bit rich but sometimes with the big engines you just have to leave the ignitor on there.
