Sears Edger 143751032

Hello I installed the DIAPHRAGM kit and cleaned and aired out the whole carb. The problem I am having is that it will not start or remain on without my fingers in front of the intake. What could be the reason for this. I have tried to adjust the idle screws but cannot get it to run on its own. Any suggestions ? THanks.

Yeah,two.Eighter your engine doesn't have enough compresson to pull fuel on its own or,the carburetor is still stoped up.Take it appart & soak it in a good brand carb/parts acid soak.for 20-30 minutes wash out and day good,put back together and try it again.Use hand and eye protecton and outdoors.

Oh yeah,clean & refill fuel tank with clean/frash gas.
