Re: flat spot

Check the choke mechanism. Something may be interfering with its operation.

Re: flat spot

Another problem that causes this is a problem with the mid-range fuel circuit in the carb. A rebuild usually fixes the problem but you've got a new carb. New doesn't always mean good though. I would look there.

Re: flat spot

Reconnect it and see if that helps anything. I can't remember much about carbs- it's been six years since I've dealt with one.
