Golwings are a cold natured beast.

Keep the RPMs up over 2,000 and some want 2,500 or more to run smoothly. They will not idle worth a darn when cold.

When it is cold, try running it with the choke on. If that helps things, then you know it is a slight mixture problem.... or the carbs need to be sync'd. They will definitely act up at lower RPMs if the carbs are out of sync.

Hello & welcome Jack,
Stockton Ks, guy here... If you smell gas, you may have a sticking float. Take off the air cleaner and make sure no gas is in the plenum. Don't let it get too much gas in crank case, it will thin the oil and is bad news.
Have the carbs been re-built recently? May need it. Search this forum for timing belt replacement. Lots of pics etc here.

Welcome to the forum, Jack. You'll find a treasure trove of info here both in past threads and in new threads. SSGF is the place to get help, give help, and in general just visit with like minded people. Enjoy! Terry
