I assume you checked for false air, and that your carburettor setup is standard.
I dont have the stock filter setup - maybe I'll should just get one off ebay.

Interesting - the crank seals were replaced but I have reason to suspect the left one as I wasn't super happy with how it went in. I thought if it were leaking that it would at least run, but idle really high. What makes you think the left seal is acting up?

Exhaust is clear. Gas is fresh.

I did the compression test last night and it read 110psi. I left it like that and this morning it reads about 105psi. So I think compression is good. I'm still concerned that I can turn it over by hand by rotating the flywheel. Should my comp reading be higher?
