If it starts but won't keep running, check to see if he spark arrester needs to be cleaned.

OEM carb or one of those cheap $20 items on eBay?

Need more info to help. Why did you replace carb? If new carb has adjustments, are they in a nominal position that should allow engine to start? Do you have compression? Does the grounded plug spark when engine rotated?

Yes we need more info. Make, model & some history about what's going on. What troubleshooting you've done, etc.
