Briggs engine? Tecumseh engine? Honda engine? Bowl type carburetor? Diaphragm type carburetor? It appears that you need to better clean the carburetor possibly using a bath type cleaner and reconditioning the carb with a rebuild kit and possibly other parts not included in the kit. Post back with engine make, model, type/spec, code/serial numbers.
