    Default Ironhead starting HELP

    Ok, so I finally got everything ready to start my 77 ironhead. Oil flowing, battery at propper voltage (12.9), points gap set, timing set, valves adjusted, super e carb cleaned with new gaskets, fresh fuel, the works. Problem is, It will fire up but wont run. No choke, I can get maybe 2-4 putters out of her and with choke, I can get her running for maybe 4-5 seconds. and sometimes she decides she is gonna spit fire out of the intake. What am I doing wrong or overlooking here? I feel like I've checked everything at least twice according to the shop manual and i still can't figure out what is wrong here
