With new plugs in and four tanks of new gas run through, it will still die out at low speed. Also does not have a lot of power when it takes off. I have the idle speed set up so that it will not die when you put it into gear. Will not run in reverse, will die. Once it goes it runs great. A friend checked the plugs and found some water. He suggested a head gasket. Any other ideas??? Thanks for your help.
Missed that one, jets. A blown head gasket is not compatible with good compression. Did you see water on all plugs or only one? If there is water on all it could explain your problems; it would have to be coming from your fuel system. The question would be: how is it getting in there?First recheck your compression. You should have over 100# on all, with no more than 15# difference between them.I still have this eerie feeling that you are continuing a conversation that I missed the first part of. . . Is there an earlier post on this engine/problem??JB
