Any time you do carb. work, it's a good idea, and pretty straight forward on a D17, to check the fuel flow. Take off the bowl and make sure there's a good flow out of the tank. Reinstall the bowl with a good screen and gasket, and make sure you get a good flow out of the fuel line right to the carb. That will help you pinpoint the issue.

I have blown back from carb to bowl, ( and Ive drained the tank and cleaned it out). I have left the screen out for now, and will get a new one, not sure if they go bad, but it seems like I get air bubbles built around it, when its in ?. I took the carb drain plug off and I do get a flow of gas all the way through, when I open the valve on the bowl.. Do you know about where the needle valves should be at for starters? Any chance I could have a carb gasket in backwards ?
Thanks again..

Disconnect the air cleaner hose and try for power. If your oil bath filter was serviced irregularly over the year, dirt could be clogging the screen. If yours is a dry air cleaner, the element may need replaced.

Almost no way to install the gasket wrong and have all the bolt holes line up. First thing to check believe it or not do so any how is your spark. Make sure it is a blue/white in color and will jump a 1/4 inch gap at ALL 4 plug wires. Weak spark will make it so you have to have an extra rich mixture to burn well if at all. If your spark is good then check your air cleaner and make sure it has the right amount of oil and not full of dirt/water. As for the carb when you had it open did you spray out ALL the passage ways with carb cleaner and did you also poke a small wire I use a torch tip cleaner tool into all the passage ways so as to make sure they are clear and open

Ok, thanks everyone, here's what Ive done. Replaced pluges, checked spark at plugs and at distributor cap,Looked real good. I have checked the air intake system, thats good. We Had it running real good for a while this eve, then all of a sudden it just starts acting like it's starving for gas. We tweek the jets a little, it straightens out for a while, then acts up again. Im taking the carb off again to give it it a good going over. Will let ya know happens next. Thanks

I think we used to start at 1.5 to 2 turns open. Sounds like you've got flow. I doubt it's a gasket issue. A passage, orifice, or something is probably still partially plugged.
