did that engine with the air cleaner plate filled with dirt still run? ive never seen any air cleaner plate so dirty how did the carb look when you took that apart? ive seen air filters turned black with dirt and leaves but not the inside plate that dirty. good thing when ever i take off an air cleaner i put the bolts back. The worst ive seen of a carb was when i split the one on a 25hp horizontal that was having trouble running had about 2mm of dirt on the bottom. Turned out thats wasn't the problem. The problem was the left side spark plug was completely filled with carbon, there was no gap, and it was using excessive oil. The real problem here was a bad oil control reed valve.
