Smile B&S Engine 42A707 will only run on prime

I have an MTD Yard Machine with a B&S engine model 42A707 which would only run when it was primed through the carburetor. Realizing this meant there was a problem with the carburetor I started a google search for information. One of the google listing was a link to this forum with the question MTD lawn tractor not getting gas...

This thread described my problem exactly and following the recommendations of the moderators and others who tried to help I was able to get my problem resolved.

I would like to thank everyone who tried to help and let them know that there are more people reading their posts than the original questioner. Your efforts are appreciated.
