    try new gas check if there is any water in the old gas. The water will pull those small orifices in the carb. Just an idea

    Is there a low speed mixture adjustment screw, if so try fattening up the mixture 1/4 turn at a time. Before you adjust turn screw until it seats[lighty] in as you count turns so you can return to original setting.
