Also, hook the battery to a low amp charger, 2 amps or less.You don't want to boil the electrolyte.

The GW's need fully charged batteries to provide enough power to both crank the engine and provide enough energy to fire the ignition side. A low battery can crank the engine and not have enoughpower to provide adequatespark.

I just reread your posts. Have you tried pumping a good dose of Seafoam into carbs and let them set for a few hours. This will help to loosen any crud in the idle circuits. This may not be a major problem. However, smelling of bad gas indicates, IMO, a possibility of varnish build up in those minuscule circuits. Just a thought.
