It could be a clogged muffler. The exaust couldn't be to hard to find. Feel around with your hand to feel where the hot air comes out.

exhaust port

The muffler is the easiest part to find (itís the very >> ((( HOT ))) << box mounted right on the side of the cylinder.Take this off and the exhaust ports is right behind it.It could also be the spark arrestor, glogged. The screen mounted on or inside the muffler.

Don't let it stop you, I have asked some questions on this forum that really sounded dumb after I re-read them and I have posted some solutions to problems that really sounded(and were) stupid after I read them. The object is to put the problem/solution out there and let those who read make their own decision. Have a good one. Geo
