So I took the carb off one more time and cleaned it again. Everthing looks really clean. But same problem, it idles great w/ or w/out choke. But if I touch the throttle (even just a little pressure on it) the engine dies right away. If I try and start it while pushing the throttle it just smokes and will not fire up. Its like its getting to much fuel and no air?? opposite from orginal problem, but I am not for sure?
I think I caused the problem! Because it would at least rev up before I took the carb off. But what could I have done wrong during reassembly? All I disassembled was the bowl, float, float valve, big jet and little jet. Is there anything that could have fallen out that I did not notice after removing the items listed? Is there anything that goes in between the needle and main jet?
