Hello Greg. My name is Tan.

If the engine idles it isn't flooding. Did you remove the high jets in the bottom of the float bowl and clean?

Have you done a spark and compression test?

Small slotted screw driver. Here is what the jet tool looks like. The dimensions are posted also if you want to make one.

Here's the tool from BRP.
