Only runs w/the Choke On
2000 Rancher ES model. The machine sat for 2 years. Replaced the gas gage, tank fuel valve, and new fuel line. Rebuilt the carborator...only replaced the gaskets. The jets were clean and not pitted. Main Jet screw @ 1 3/4 turns as found and per manual. I didn't check the spec for the carb bowl float as it was in good condition and was not cracked, broken, or bent. Tested it in water and it did not take on water so that should be okay.
I can get it to start and it runs with the choke all the way on, but when I give it gas (throttle) it dies. If I slowly turn the choke off it dies. It does not start without using the choke.
Any suggestions ?
