    Unit runs only with choke. when choke is released, unit stops. I have already changed Plug, fuel, fuel filter & even cleaned out the bottom half of the carburetor which is Plastic. Unit still runs with choke in place.

    Any input ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I also noticed some back firing thru the carby and muffler. The coil is clean. I am not sure what the valve clearance should be but they see to not be too tight at TDC.
