Help me with no-start Briggs 6.5hp

OK...I posted a thread about a week ago asking for a little help.

We pretty much determined it was the carb that was giving me a no start on my 6.5hp briggs engine. Basically, gave it a new plug, no good...swapped gas, no good...when I prime it, it starts. If I keep priming it, it stays running...stop priming and it stalls.

If I start it with the air filter off, it starts to sputter, I can put my hand over the carb intake real quick and take it back away and keep it running like that.


anyway, here's a pic:

The ones that say sprays fine, means I put my carb cleaner tube in there, and it comes through the other end.

The one in the middle on the left that sprays fine makes the carb cleaner go through by the butterfly valve. When I spray the one that says clogged, it doesn't come out, just holds pressure in there. It's just metal in there though and doesn't seem like anything removeable...any help?


The needle is clean, there was gas in the bowl, the float is empty (not filled with gas) and the o-rings and all that seem good and were not leaking.
