Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

This sounds like you still have a passage in the carburetor that is partially blocked not allowing enough fuel to pass through it. Did you remove the jets from the carburetor and physically run a jet cleaner through them or did you just spray through them? If you have access to one, I would remove the carburetor and have it cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner which will do a tremendous job of cleaning all of the passages, much better than what you can with carburetor cleaner and air hose.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
