hard starting L-B

I was hoping someone could help.Have a older L-B where it will not start
from just pulling the cord.if I shoot a little ether in the carb then
it starts and will run all day. I've taken the carb apart (plastic
carb with a single bolt on top) changed the float.when checking the
plug it seems quite oily/wet. so I'm assuming it's running rich.If so
how do I lean it out?If not what is the problem

I assume L-B means lawnboy? Is the choke closing fully?

Watch inside the carb throat when you prime the primer. Does gas come into the carb throat? If not, there is a problem in the primer circuit. Could be a bad primer bulb, line, or bowl gasket on the carb.
