Glad to see you got it back together! A trick I've learned on my Superior's is to shut off the air valve! After its started of course, then you can turn your propane way down "it'll suck enuf air from around the stem in the mixer". Those Superiors with run like a Swiss clock and never miss a beat. Try it and play with the mag timing lever to find the sweet spot. You'll be surprised how quiet and smooth it'll be! My 35hp would count em' off all day at 52rpm.

Great job! I sure do like those 15's.
I also run my 25 with no air. Can't hardly hear it running.
