Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
Drain the diesel from your fuel tank completely. Remove the fuel/float bowl from your carburetor, to remove the diesel from your bowl. Use some carburetor cleaner in a can, and some compressed air, to clean the entire underside of your carburetor. Put your fuel bowl back on your carburetor, and refill your fuel tank with fresh gas.
Give your engine another try. This should work for you. We can continue from here. Thanks!
