  Further investigation by ourselves and a Russian mechanic with lots of M14P
experience has revealed that there was a threaded plug in the pressure carb
which was not safety wired and had backed out.  The plug was replaced but
there was no  gas passing  through the carburetor, indicating the carb had
other problems.  The carb was replaced with a new one and the engine seems to
be running fine now.

Further telephone conversation with a dealer/distributer in the north east
reveals he has received two recently manufactured a/c, from the factory, with
one or more loose, threaded, carburetor plugs.

More information as it becomes available.
