Sounds like your carb was running rich, and this could have fouled out your plugs. Pull them all and take a look at them, I bet they are all black and sooty, and smell of gasoline. This will cause the "dead" cylinder you were talking about in your other post, maybe more than one. If you have the old carb, or another one you can use, change all your plugs and try another carb. I bet the carb is the root to all your problems. KZ

Where did you get 882's from? I thought they were 441's.
