cleaned the snot out of the carb, found a missing part of gasket between the airbox and the carb, new fuel, and found missing exhaust gasket.  I'm thinking the combo of a small exhaust leak, and possibly some nasties in the engine from the gasket may have done it.  Carb looked clean though. 

All I know is its running like a champ and is faster than its ever been since I owned it.

Has compression, a little oil smoke when you start it. Iím wondering if itís because the kids were choking it to kill it or something. Obviously the oil is getting through somewhere, but I havenít seen any more on th headers.  Got a little busy, weíre harvesting right now so itís a little crazy. Thinking I may just buy a new engine when I get a chance then itíll be easier to rebuild and play around with it.

rings, valve guides. do a compression test and leak down and see what it says.

You could also check that spark is present and or it hasn't kicked or bent a pushrod. Did loss of power happen all of a sudden?

Iíve felt like I had a loss of power, and noticed this today. Thoughts?
