cub cedet push mower will not stay running after replacing carb, completely cleaning fuel system. Will prime and start. Noticed no choke like my lawn boy. Any suggestions?
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: tank is full of clean fuel and there is no shut of valve and i insured in tank filter is clean. good fuel flow to carb. new carb fuel bowl is full.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Hi I'm Wayne

I will be assisting you with this issue today

Yes I was going to suggest the choke by hand

if that keeps it running , you have a leak at the mounting gasket

I hope this helps you
