Boy,Larry! Could you have an air leak at the intake manifold?Put a little gas in a lid off a milk jug or motor oil bottle with the engine just slightly warmed up and CAREFULLY pour it onto the connection between the carb and the intake.If the engine changes from idle to higher rpm or drops rpm,you have an air leak there.Also drip it where the intake meets the cylinder,but don't drip any gas near a hot engine or exhaust! And you said you set the points,you didn't say replaced them.Bad points will rob you of power with weak spark.But it still sounds more like a fuel or fuel-air ratio problem to me. Remove your air cleaner and try it once and see if it improves much.Are you saying this `ped used to have hill-pulling power or are you just guessing it should be the same as the other one.It could be a single-speed and the other could be a 2-speed.Just asking!
