Default 87 Suzuki Samurai Engine Putts

Hi... Have had our stock 87 Sami for about 2 years. Everything running great. Several weeks ago... it developed a loud almost putt-ing sound from the engine at startup... would last for a little bit and go away. But now, it's like that all the time. It's almost like a flutter or putt putt putt from a lawn mower.

I checked the spark plugs which were changed last year along with wires and distrb cap. Checked vaccum hoses etc. Check the cat converter which LOOKS okay but not sure how to tell if it went bad.

There isn't a loss of power... as powerful as the 1.3 engine can be. All fluids changed 4 months ago. It's got 129K miles on it.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
