As I have almost 0 experience with clinton engines, I managed to get the one I've been working on to run, but it was surging, then evened out, but is running rich, that was where I stopped with it, could using. Form a gasket between carb and engine cause this, didn't have correct gasket on hand. Also what gear oil should I use in the gear reduction on this?

The engine info is:
Carburetor: Carter model N
Model#:87618761A0A C
Serial#:2494723

I use straight 30# oil,if you had to run the jets in to get it to straighten out I'd check the needle seat,a bad float will do this also, catch the gas in a pan and look for junk in it and the float Bowl,these are good engine's and worth the effort

Didn't bottom out the needles, did replace the float, if it was out of adjustment could this cause it to do this?

yes it could,set the float so it's level with the casting when it closes,up or down from this just a hair for fine tuning,lower is leaner,if the float is up past level to shut the gas off it could be the problem
