Hi, my name is***** and am happy to assist with the problem you are having. Do you have a complete make, model and serial number for this machine?

Expert:  Mark Dotson replied 7 months ago.

If the engine will run normally with the choke partially out, the carburetor still has a port clogged. The best thing to do is to replace that carburetor. If you have the spec number, I can assist with finding the correct carb for you.
