Did you clean your fuel tank before you re-installed your carburetor? If not, you may have sediments from your fuel tank inside the fuel bowl on your carburetor. Sediments can partially clog the small jet and fuel passages in the body of your carburetor.

Also, check to see if you are getting a good and continuous flow of fuel from your fuel tank, to your carburetor.
