    i got one of these things alittle while back its a good motor but its hard to start and when you do get it started it will idle up and die. then will start back up and do the same thing all over again.anyone got an idea of what i should be looking at?

    Sounds like the choke isn't staying closed long enough and the carbs aren't filling all the way with fuel. I would clean the carb and replace the rubber fuel lines and go from there.
