Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you tried to adjust the carburetor settings? Did you install a rebuild kit when you had the carburetor apart and cleaned it?
So you didn't even take it apart prior to soaking it?
I would recommend taking the carburetor apart and cleaning it thoroughly inside. I would even install a new carburetor kit when doing this. There are two rubber diaphragms inside the carburetor that work to pump the fuel up from the tank to the carburetor and then meter the amount of fuel going through the carburetor when it is running. If these diaphragms become stiff or damaged your machine will not run properly.
