I will need to ask you some troubleshooting questions, as we go.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

One half turn out, is not enough. Try starting with 1-1/2 turns out, on both.

Check to see, if you are getting a good, continuous flow of gas, from your fuel tank, to your carburetor. If so, it is very likely that you still have either a clogged jet, or fuel passage, inside your carburetor. It is always good to use a small wire to clean every small hole you see, when cleaning your carburetor.

Due to current EPA regulations, carburetor jets and fuel passages are getting smaller and smaller, and it does not take very much, to clog one of them.
