That's exactly what I was trying to get across in Previous posts but it does look well used.

Maybe it is too rich if not it is either the reed or this has not had a proper break in.
So replace the reed and maybe retainer ten let it run rich for a while and see did it improves later.

Yes you did, I should have read more closely.

Sounds a little like my Golden Bee Wilf a dab of Hermatite on the o ring between tank and back plate
worked for me. Might've been better to put a new o ring in but Hey you understand hammers...!

I always replace that O-ring as a matter of course with any new (used) engine I get, together with all the other gaskets, and if I don't have a spare a bit of silicone fuel tube works just as well Very Happy Very Happy

I prefer the silicone fuel tube to the Cox o-gasket. I think the silicone tube makes a tighter seal as long as you don't cut it too thick. About 1mm but it's not critical.

I find the original cox ones are a bit thin sometimes.
