Did you poke a wire through the holes in the nozzle and jets? I have a Briggs shop manual but it doesn't say or show much on cleaning the carb.I'll send you a download link .See chapter 3 and look over the diagrams to see which carb resembles yours and if it has the nozzle and a fixed or removable jet that you can poke a wire through.http://1drv.ms/1Aof8wG

Vince,

I will pull the carb in the morning and check everything - I know it is starving for fuel - needs added vacuum to suck extra fuel through. Maybe I missed something.

How do I contact you in the morning?
