Default Another IHC 1 1/2hp M Question

After recieving my little gold package yesterday a complete and in nice shape Ignitor for my engine it does need the contacts replace but will do for know. I was able to get the old girl fired up and running for a good long time as long as I kept up filling the carb (Note to self order fuel pump parts and tubing monday).
I have to get the mag timed yet which does put out real well dont ask. While running I notice alot of huffing from the rear out the vent tube is this normal or do I need to look at the rings or other places.
Still have along ways to go but she is running which makes me feel real good. I will put my Youtube link up in the video area when I get a chance.

Yes, normal. Should be a breather valve on the end of the pipe. I think you can order one???

If it started by turning the flywheels the rings are good. Tom

Thanks for the replies and Sky I,m glad to hear you got your running also I put a video up in the youtube section. After I took the video I went back out and checked it over and notice I had the govenor turned way down so she was running kinda slow. I turned it up and she runs alot smoother.
I gotta make abig order for the engine but I want to get my Economy straighten out so that is first and then I will get at cleaning this on all up.
