I was making a general observation that in hotter temperatures an engine runs richer.

If you read this, you will see I didn't say which way to go... just to try either way to try to improve his stalling.

>>>The screw right above the split at the float bowl would be the idle mixture screw...(which will richen or lean out the idle mixture depending on which way you turn it) and try screwing it in OR out an eighth or quarter of a turn at a time to see if it helps.<<<

I think the Spree just needs it's idle speed and mixture set to raise engine speed at idle...period.

You will notice it has new rings and doesn't have any other performance problems.

The hard cranking on a hot engine is true for any gasoline engine... and could simply be more apparent because his battery may be old (only he knows his battery's age and history)

Dave... Just try to raise your idle speed ...first with the idle mixture screw (which may be enough)... then with the idle speed screw... As long as the clutch isn't engaging you should be alright.
