Where should I start troubleshoot?

The funny thing is that it was running pretty good for maby 30sek.

Got new oil and sparkplug, didnt really see anything bad in the carb

Do you have both idle and main jets turned out 1-1/2 turns?

Yeah, but its so wierd. Sometimes it runs like shiit, and the other second I runs pretty nice, and then back to ahit again..

Not the best video but.. something like this

These carbs are notorious for warping if they were taken apart many times this will cause erratic running as well, check between the mating surfaces of the two halves and see if they are flat.

 

Also is that duct tape on the gas cap? If you dont have a cap you may be getting air locked fuel running like that.
