Will start one you first try, won’t idle and when you let off the throttle it dies and won’t start back, carbs been cleaned, spark plug is fine, everything I have tried won’t work. Any suggestions on what to do.
Float stuck in the carb...maybe. Also, because of it's age check the petcock on the left side of the tank, has a screen in it and I'll bet 16 years of debris around the screen. Best to remove it , clean the screen and flush the tank with fresh gas.
