THe problem is still most likely in the carburetor. Make sure that you get all of the small passages cleaned out and use a new complete carburetor repair kit when you clean the carburetor.
It sounds like you are still not getting enough fuel to the engine.
also another possibility is that the gas cap may not be venting. Try running it with the gas cap loose and see if that helps.
