Just had carbs cleaned, new fuel pumps and oil change. Made one lap around the lake and got it warmed up and then shut it down and checked oil. Oil look great , same as new, idled 5 min to my fishing spot and shut it down. Got ready to head home after hour of fishing, fired it up and ran about 10 seconds and dies in cloud of smoke. I waited a bit tried to restart a couple times and finally towed it in. Got home and pulled the dipstick and oil sprayed everywhere so drained the oil and had about 3 quart too much oil/mixed with gas. Will the run it like you hate it method fix this or do I have deeper issues?
