Oh so what could be the problem - I was told it was the reed valve! It was coughing out of the carb apparently.

I am not familiar with this engine but generally a cough or sneeze is caused by bad timing or running too lean.

I would have thought there is more to it than not. The engineer spent an hour on it! I wonder if the compression had gone or something. Hohum will have to strip it down but I bet you can't get parts for it any more.

You will have no problem getting parts for it. Is the plastic air box still there?
