...adjust the timing and the vacuum advance. set the butterfly and heat- riser up correctly for the temperature...examine the snorkel and stove kit to make sure that the flap opens after a few minutes of use----check the fuel pressure at the fuel pump and replace fuel filter~

It could be many things that stall the engine when put into drive. Check the vacuum hoses first. Check the engine idle speed too.

it's the temperature vs. carburetor enrichness to be set correctly~

How long after you put it in to drive does it die? rite away or after a couple of seconds?
