    Start the engine and set the throttle where it hunts the most, Reach to the throttle control plate and start SLOWLY applying the choke with your finger. If it smooths out do as below.

    Take the carb. off then tear it down, Spray carb. & choke cleaner with the straw through ALL ports, passages and jets then re-assemble.

    Check the fuel tank for water/trash, Flush the fuel line and replace the fuel filter and spark plug.

    Here is the carb break-down in case you need it;
