It's not oily, on the outside at least. The inside looks to be a bit rusty, particularly the filter element around the opening in the center.I have a piece of wire thats about a foot long that I used to break up what seemed to be blocking the exhaust. I'm assuming there must be some crud in the filter element thats preventing the exhaust gasses from freely flowing out.

I'm a bit hesitant to do that. After tapping a spanner on the exhaust to loosen up some of the build up, I gently tapped the exhaust against a small tree trunk by the shed. To my surprised, it put a few dents in the exhaust! It must either be really rusted from the inside or a super thin metal. I'm afraid chucking it on a fire will cause even more damage...

Either way, I think the bigger issue I think is why it seems to die when the idle screw is backed off even a little bit from its highest rpm setting.

Stupid question, but which direction should the pedal be pushed to start the engine? Does it matter? The manual I was able to download states that pedaling first and then pulling the clutch should start the moped, so I've been kicking down on the right hand side pedal in a clockwise direction.
