The DPO had not installed any filters. Since the carbs have fouled
(causing overflow, etc) I bet
The "gjunk" in the system is rampant. Thanks for the tip.

Boy, does this sound familiar. I just went through the same thing a
couple of months ago. Ended up going through all of the possible
causes. Spent lots of time futzing with the coil thing--turns out that
my DPO put the wrong type of coil on mine.
So I get the coil swapped and think that this was the answer--went for
a ride and still not fixed.
My brother (a REAL mechanic)suggested we check the obvious-- all of the
fuel lines checked/replaced. Before we went to rip out the lower line
(the one that runs the length of the chassis), he thought we should
check it with some pressurized air. He hooked up the air line used in
the garage and it could barely blow through the line--it was so gunked
up. Apparently, this lower line is where any gunk wil settle.
We replaced the line and all is running well.
What was happening in my case was that enough fuel would seep into the
carbs to allow for a smooth idle, but whenever the engine (at higher
revs) sucked the carb bowls dry, it would cut out.
So my lesson learned in this was: don't overlook the obvious.
