The governor is definetly working. The points, condensor and battery, I converted to battery/coil set-up, are fine and adjusted per the manual. Timing is as it should be. I know its in the carb. I rebuilt it 5 years ago and it will have to be done again.

I sanded all the gasket surfaces using 1000 wet/dry paper. I laid the paper face up on top of a flat piece of marble and slowly rubbed the carb bodies gasket surface in a circular motion across the paper. The bottom bowl was no problem. Not even the top part of the carb to motor intake mounting flange.
But the gasket surface of the top portion of the carb is something else altogether. You have the cast in alignment nips and the float mounting parts that stick up above the gasket surface. Plus the warpage factor makes it tough to get flat and true. Had to use a small double tipped plastic/rubber mallet to coax the warpage out of it. Slow put sure.
Have to do a little more work on it tomorrow then I'll bolt it back together and see of I can get a better idle and performance from the carb.

It had a warped carb and would not want to run right. I was lucky enough to have a spare carb laying around so I put it on and it ran great.
I did try and sand down the waped carb, it did run a bit better when I did this but It was very warped so I used a different carb.
