It took out a slick, knocked the scoop off and scratched a header. The reason I told this story is when I got to the other end the engine was still running. In my state of daze I even racked the engine back before I killed it like I would any other time. The carb works on vacuum more so than gravity. A stutter is probably a lean problem, IMO alittle tilt of the carb wouldn't cause it, unless you have a bowl set to high.....
Did you win that round or no?
