Thank you for the responses. It's been a while since I've gotten to work on it. I checked it this afternoon and when shooting starting fluid in the intake the mower will run without blowing it back out the intakes. It will run as long as I keep squirting fluid in. It does run wide open and is really smoking. I have replaced the needle valve and all that stuff in the carb but not the float tube fuel plastic piece. That's the piece that the inlet jet goes into. Do I need to replace those two pieces, I think that's all that's left to buy, or get a new carb. Thanks.
