I traded my rebuilt engine and install for his Case 210 and have about $200.00 in rebuild costs. I feel like just returning the Case and calling it a loss but I feel I'm in too deep to just call it off. I'm a little sick of losing sleep over this one and just want to make it right for him. Thanks a bunch for any input of ideas you may have.

It sounds like it's getting additional air from somewhere?

I am with Alan on this that it is a bad gasket or something letting more air by then it should.

The problem ended up being lack of fuel to the carb.
The cause was the gas cap, it had a gauge in it, the float level type gauge. It fell apart inside the tank and some of the parts found there way to the fuel fitting and would restrict the fuel flow.
I fixed this without knowing, one day I decided to remove all the broken parts of it from inside the tank and no more problems with lack of power.
Maybe the same thing happening on yours??? not enough fuel flow to the carb, these carbs as you know have a fuel pump.

Well......it was a simple problem. The fuel shut off underneath the gas tank was plugged almost tight. One more reason to check everything myself. I was humbled.
Wow, that's great that it wasn't more complicated. Sorry you had to stress over it before the problem was found.
Mental note. Check the fuel flow before assuming it's the carb or peripheral. Done.
