Default engine running goofy

was coming down a hill last weekend in a sand pit and at the bottom kind of ran of the beaten path and hooked my ski on a 1" sappling. No damage just stopped me kind of abruptly. Shut the sled off yanked it out. When I started it back up it ran like it was on two cylinders possibly?? wouldnt idle by itself, hard to get it to accelerate until higher rpms. It then seemed to kick in on all cylinders and run pretty much normal until you slowed down again. I road it back to the house 1/2 mile and pulled the plugs on it. Clutch side seemed rich and wet. middle brown and right brown. Where do I start with this? I pulled the sled over slowly and it seems to have good compression on each cylinder although I have not throw a comp tester on it. Any ideas as to what I could of done stopping abrubtley

thanks,
confused as heck

check the pilots, the jolt could have broken a piece of varnish, or anything and go sucked into the pilot jet clogging it.

I think you should be looking at electrical. Pull all 3 plugs, put the plugs in the boots, set the plugs on the head on an unpainted bolt or portion of the engine, and yank it over. Are all 3 sparking?

pull the tops off the carbs to make sure the needle didnt get stuck up for some reason.

also look at the wires around the recoil and under the pto carb. make sure everything is plugged in. possibly take off bowl of pto carb and make sure the floats arent stuck or something.

I'm with MX86 on this one.
Put some Seafoam in it too.
