I was having 2nd thoughts whether to replace my oil pump gear with the new style, but after reading your story I'll be changing that out as soon as I can.

So your machine revs in neutral?

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like it may be fuel or air starved....even if fuel filter and line looks good replace with new piece of fuel line without filter to see if old line is collapsing upon demand, you might want ton check fuel pickup line for same issue. Over time some fuel will cause rubber to break down inside but appear fine outside. Check engine with air filter off of it at same time.

I'm with you, I just changed the cam and rockers in mine this summer because they were wore out. It seemed to be pumping oil good when I had the covers off it was shooting oil out on the exhaust and smoked up my garage. But I haven't got a gauge on it yet to check the pressure. I'm the 3rd owner of mine so I don't know what it's been through.

herb,does it rev up in neutral.................:confused:
Again this? I think this will help a lot knowing if it revs fine in neutral or if it has problems in neutral as well.

It seems to me if it revs fine in neutral, but not in gear, then maybe there is some sort of electrical issue limiting it (maybe not fully in gear, etc.). Other ideas if it revs poorly no matter what.
