Sounds like a air leak. Check all the seals and make sure the carb is seated all the way in the block. If those are good then its probably the front bearing leaking.

Sure we can take a look. You can order ceramic bearing from Boca for cheap. Walter at the track has the tool to put it in for ya. I think its bocabearing .com.

Just order a new one. I think there around 20 each.

problem resolved money refunded and motor returned thanks for the input but what i would have cost to fix it was well more that the actual cost. as i got into the motor there was more probs than i thought just an honest mistake so thanks to NOT dealing with a scammer it was resolved with no problems
