Default Gen. 1 tmaxx w/o.s. 15cv, drill start

Hello all, first time posting, ... ok so here is the issue:

My son got a gen.1 traxxas tmaxx with the O.S. 15cv motor in it from my brother for xmas. The pull start was broken completely and so I changed it over to a drill start. Supposedly from the local hobby vendor it works fine. HOWEVER once I put it on and tried it all I can do is get a small bump out of it. it wants to kick over but all I get is a few stutters. I have played with the settings on all the screws and found what seems to be the factory base setting.

Could it it be not getting gas? It does get some coming out if the pipe. I know it has a bad seal on the fuel tank lid so I used mine from another (newer) tmaxx. I am all outa clues. The glowplug starter is a pain in the A$$ too but I am dealing with it.

Also as you look at the motor from the rear, the crank spins clockwise right?

Thanks
