check if spark is weak or strong, yellow=weak, blue with snap sound=strong. incorrect point gap?= timing off. check carb, may be getting too much/ not enough gas. sha carb?

Point gap is in the manual that was linked... between .014 and .018. I doubt you're getting too much gas, you just need spark.

wet plug = too rich check that the float valve is working properly.
