Honda gcv190 auto choke, has new carb, starts with gas

Customer Question

Honda gcv190 auto choke, has new carb, starts with gas sprayed in carb then dies. gas is getting to the carb.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: New fuel, gas is getting to the carb.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes. I have cleaned and replaced many carbs, cleaned points on older mowers and considered myself a fair small engine person, until now. If there is spark, air and gas and the unit starts it should run. Of course most of my repair work is on older equipment, not one this new.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't know. I am going to run a gas line from another tank next. I am out of ideas.
