Hey Tim,
Yeah, all that! My friend said that there are probably a few factors in why I am having this problem now. He said that sometimes when you go through and throw new parts in, it screws up the "environment" that the motor had before. Also, I didn't think about it, but I drove it home while it was warmer out than it is now. We've had a few weeks of frigid weather, so thats not helping. He's thinking that it would run like it did before if it wasn't so cold out, since it runs strong after warming up for about 10 minutes. I'm going to start out with a new carb and go from there. Thanks for your input.
