Default tuning help

Hello, I`am having some trouble when starting my nova rossi 353 engine, it will start but just die when you give it throttle. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks

Not enough fuel on the bottom, or too lean on top

Mate i just had a similar problem with my O.S tz .12 and i found that the guy i had bought it off had played around with the mid-range needle so there for every time i got to mid-full throttle it would just die. I put the needle flush with the carby (usually where they are on any motor) and it actually fixed my problem. Now it screams

sounds like the low end needle. Richen it up a little so you get some fuel in that motor. Also, yeah, check the idler screw. Flush to the carb is a good starting point. Also check the plug.
