had the same thing happen to me, turn the screw out 2 turns, it should start and run after that. With it running turn it in until it starts to die, then open it up a little.

Well, if it's already out too much, just turn in in until it lightly seats, then turn it out 2 turns and tune it from there.

The float might not be adjusted right, not letting enough gas into the carb. Also, make sure your fuel shut-off vavle is on the "on" position.

Fuel is flowing great out of the tank.It was running great when parked a year or two ago.I bought 2 new front wheels and an air filter today,i want to use this thing!
