Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. So to make sure I understand you, it will run if fuel is restricted right ?
Ok check your oil , is it thin or smell like gas ?
Is this a new carburetor?
When it was on its side did it take a hard hit ? Anything that could of messed up the ohv ? . Have you removed the gas cap and checked for fuel flow past the pump ?
Sorry my last respose was to another question,
If it's spraying gas up at you till it dies then the first concern is is the carburetor allowing gas to bypass the needle and inlet valve . You stated that you changed the oil and oil filter since replacing the carburetor. If you hadn't that would be my first suspicion. With the new carburetor it shouldn't be flooding itself , the float which holds the needle should cut off gas flow as the needle rises
Where was the new carburetor purchased from ?
The only reason I ask is I've had trouble with generic replica carburetors off of amazon and ebay
If the float isn't level when held upside down it may be allowing to uch gas
