Re: Spark Plug Reading

The small 4inch paper ones were giving me trouble. Your Oil bath should be alright. Like JSeery said try it without.
Check the choke plate, make sure it opens all the way.

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

Ok I'll armchair quarterback.
Can we rule out the motor? Does it cough and spit when coming to a stop?
