After replacing the battery, per Cutter, at Rubber Chicken. The machine turns over, idles, but whrn in gear dogs, or lugs, and has no ower other than a minor nudge, then stalls.
I did the valves, carbs, yet it has no power other than an idle.

That engine is running on 1 cylinder. You can plainly hear it.

Replace the plugs, plug caps (5K Ohm NGK) and plug wires (metal core only). Cost you about $20 total.

You probably fouled a plug trying to crank it on old ethanol gas. And thanks for the video !

I would start with what Wobbly said. While in there, see if there is fuel in that cylinder. This would point to the carb as well, but I would put money on the plug and wires and since the other cylinder sounds fine. The correct wires and plugs are critical so order them as instructed above. I just got a flyer from EME and they have everything in stock but sounds like you got a local source too. Good luck, and by the way, she is a beaut!

You did set the valves correctly on the compression stroke-right? Set one side rotate 360 and set the other.
