1978 Vespa Grande Deluxe starts, then dies.

It starts fine and runs for maybe a second and then kind of slowly dies. It seems like it might not be getting fuel? Tank is full. It was running earlier today. Any ideas or suggestion would be welcome to this moped "noob."

Thanks!

Bill

Re: 1978 Vespa Grande Deluxe starts, then dies.

In case anyone searches this in the future, I ended up taking out and cleaning the air filter, which seemed necessary from all the dirt in it but didn't solve the problem, and removed and cleaned the carburetor, which did solve the problem. Hopefully I'll have smooth riding from here on out.
