You haven't mentioned it, but with the age of the sled, have you lubricated or replaced the throttle cable?

It could even need to be adjusted.

You mentioned putting your hand over the carbs and it slowing down, assume you don't have a factory air box on?

What does the spark plug burn look like? Does it show lean?

It's cheaper to replace the decals, then build up a little sled. The first time I drove a snowmobile was 7/4/72. It was a 71 488 Polaris Charger.
