One of the biggest things that is overlooked is the accelerator pump lever adjustment. It should be between .015-.020 and must be set at WOT. Evidently you don't set it when the motor is running. But you must have the throttle at WOT with motor off, and push down on the lever and see what the adjustment is between the lever and the bottom of the screw with the spring. Then adjust accordingly with a feeler gauge as you would with setting a valve lash.
