Problem fixed: Heavy white smoke, couldn't keep running at idle, ran ok at speed if you could get in gear and going.
A knowledgeable friend advised me that the symptoms indicate fuel flooding. Ran ok at speed because we added air. Turns out the primer solenoid was by-passing fuel when not energized. Disassembly revealed the fuel primer solenoid metal plunger, plunger spring and the white plastic valve stem had become one piece. I suspect that ethanol in the fuel melted the valve stem which bonded the three parts together. Easy fix once I knew what the problem was.
