Xr2 fuel problem....?....?...?...?

I recently bought a ring 20 with xr2 engine. Apparently it's a race engine, anyway I took it out for a spin and within a short running time of good fun and speed it died or 'bogged' down to my disappointment. I noticed that it was gravity fed yet there was a fuel pump on the line at some stage. Also the restricter was still on the line but fully open. Further inspection revealed a dodgy seal on the fuel filter so I replaced it there an then. Still no power in gear but revving out...weird!
Limping back to the quay just in gear but any throttle would bog it down.
Plugs out, - loose to start, grubby and oily but new looking, dumped and changed
New fuel filter on engine and on fuel line. Fuel pump piped in and restricted at number 4 setting , carbs inspected, drained but nothing further than a splash of carb cleaner through the jets. Throttle bodies wiped clean with little dirt on inspection.
Checked spark on all 6 cylinders ok

Can anyone give me a heads up if this fails. I've been told to run a compression test but don't know the correct psi for these engines, any ideas.??

Don't think it is the stator.
Mine stator 'burned over' a couple of years ago, and the motor just stopped like you flick a switch.
My mecanic told me; the sky is blue, fish swim in water, and stators burn over :-).
Sounds more like a dodgy fuel-line to me?. Lots of fuel to rep in neutrual, but not enough fuel to deliver real power.

U can make ur own flushing kit, get some rc model fuel pipe duck tape and a short hose with a connector, mould it round the bullet and the rest is pretty obvious good luck

Doubt any body owned this bag of worms on here but it was previously owned by a formula 1 mechanic from mcClaren,

Yea it's in Ireland. Bought from performance marine in Leitrim. I was meaning to get on to you guys about this engine before the problems had started as the guy who sold it to me recommended your company for any problems I might have. I've been on to him and is willing to stand by his sale so that's fair enough. Any chance you guys would be interested in a rebuild..?

Certainly, I have a few powerheads/blocks here so may be an easier/ more cost effective option depending on how bad yours is. But if its just dropped no 2 it should be straight forward enough.
