Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Can you tell me if you have a fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor? If so, I would question as to whether it is working properly or not.

is that the bowl shape part
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

If it has one on it there will normally be two wires going to the bottom of the carburetor.

it has two wire going to the oil filter?
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

Wires going to the oil filter are for a low oil pressure sensor that would shut the engine down if it lost oil pressure.

When you cleaned the carburetor did you remove the main jet from the center of the carburetor stem and thoroughly clean the small holes in it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no only the srew port in the lower part of carb
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

I would recommend going back and thoroughly cleaning the main jet that is in the center stem of the carburetor. I believe that if you will do that the machine should come to life and run on its own.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
