Do you have old carb? Does it have solenoid? Remove the old solenoid, and cut the tip off, and install in the new carburetor as a dummy.

You have checked for spark at the plug?

I tried that and the mower flooded out over night you did not tell me to put in a shutoff valve i want to cancel my membership to the site
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 3 months ago.

The electric valve is not the shutoff for gas. It is the anti-backfire solnoid. The needle valve and float in the carburetor does that!
