There may be the answer to the question if the carb top hole isn't sealed.

Why can't you compare it?
An engine is an engine. If something is wrong you have the same result. Either could be badly recored, either could have wrong Carburton and either could have incorrect timing.

As spaceman said. Take a close look at the enrichment/choke unit. Is the seal in good condition od "dimpled: if its worn you will be permanently running on a bit of choke.

Many chromers won't do wheel rims anymore as to polish them properly actually rips their mops to pieces.

A motor can seize,cool down and run again. If you think about it an ignition or carb setting would probably not make the engine clattery (unless you mean it was pinking like hell).
Do you know if it has has a rebore recently? It's amazing how many companies have no idea about piston clearances.

If it has siezed more than once there are many good reasons why it won't start again.

You can buy new Raymond silencers. They are made in Birmingham as far as I remember.

It's the horizontal screw on the carb side. Before you do anything take some time to read up on setting up a amal carb. If you can get a copy of the Rupert Ratio book. Having knowledge beforehand can save a lot of money in the long run.
You really need to know if the piston has "picked up" on the bore. If ithas there is no point going any further till that damage is rectified.

You are getting a light seizure of the engine. Often occurs nowadays as many run the mixture too rich and causes "bore wash" where the oil which would be on thd cylinder wall gets washed off by the rich mixture. Can you get your hands on a cheap flexicam to put down the plughole. Have a look at the sides of the cylinder for signs of alloy on the walks.
Where are you based.
