If you have a fuel mixture control on the carburetor then make sure that if it is tied off that it hasn't came loose and leaned the carb out . That could cause a problem, my 470 wouldn't start one day and the carburetor throttle pump went bad, still squirted fuel but not hard enough to get up into e...
