Thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you find the answer you need to resolve your problem.
It sounds like you have an air leak. Did you replace the carb to intake gasket and the intake to engine gasket when you removed the carb?
If you can get me the code and serial number of the engine I will be able to take a closer look at your engine and carb
I did not replace the gaskets they look fine. I was having the same problem prior then it would not start at all before I cleaned the carb. Not sure which one of these is the model number, came off the muffler.
Thanks I will try that.
