Hello. My name is Tan.

If you pull the choke out about 1/2 will it keep running?

Try squeezing the primer bulb will it keep running?

I don't know what appears to be good means?

The looks of the fuel system from a visual point of view doesn't help with the internals of how they look. It can look brand new outside and be totally gummed up internally.
