The Webra motor I'd like to keep because of its historical value. Needless to say the bearings had it, as the ring was stuck inside the piston. I replaced the bearings, and managed to free the ring. Unfortunately the rind bended a bit. I worked on it for a few days to get it as perfect as possible and reassembled everything.
This old motor idles beautifully, and is very responsive, but it has one gremlin I cannot get rid of.
The motor keeps high operating RPM for a few seconds, and dies instantly all of a sudden. Tuning the low and high needle has got little to no effect on this problem.
Please help me to save this piece of Austrian history. I've added a YouTube link that demonstrates the issue at hand.

Just an idea, maybe there is a restriction somewhere in the fuel supply line to the engine or the line feeding exhaust pressure to the tank. Enough fuel for idle but not sufficient for high rpm. Also have a look inside the tank.
