Sears riding mower

Have a sears riding lawn mower started it to day and it run a while and it started missing and stopped running could not get it started again. Check oil and gas both full.removed the carb.,bulb and gas run out of it. Would it be a blocked carb.? This is a tecumsch, 12.5 hp. Will check on the 3 holes in the carb. I took out the spark plug and it has a good spark. Took off the bowl on the carb and the gas is running good from the tank. So it has to be the carb. Does any one have the layout of this carb?

Hello L. Vander Meule!

Could very well be a carb problem. What make and model engine do you have? HP?

If it's a tecumseh, remove the bowl nut and clean out the tiny holes in the sides of it (3 of them).
