Thanks Spike.

I adjusted the float and installed a new fuel pump yesterday at the water. But still the same symptoms. It started and ran fine in neutral but would not rev up in gear. Could it have something to do with the timing (someone else told me that the timing had to advance with the throttle)? Or should I focus more on the carberator? I rebuilt the carberator which was very clean inside all cavities and appears to be okay.

I would like to fix this motor myself, but I am getting close to taking it to a better mechanic.

Thanks again,
