You could get the engine numbers and get a manual for the engine. Small Engines, Lawn Mower Engines and Generators by Briggs & Stratton
The manual you linked to says it is a Briggs 6hp OHV.
Sounds like you are on the right track with the carb or fuel system.
Did the fuel bowl have fuel in it?
Fresh gas?
Could be some passages or jet you missed or did not get cleaned.
How are you cleaning btw?

You need to post the engine model, type and code usually found on the metal engine shroud just above the spark plug. If it has a bowl carb either the main jet, the nut that holds the bowl on, is dirty, some have holes near the bottom or the nozzle is clogged. Have a good one. Geo

good idea, i'll look for the engine # tomorrow


Fuel i the fuel bowl: Yes
Fresh Gas: old gas flushed/added new gas before i did the carb work
Could be some passages or jet you missed or did not get cleaned: Most likely, to be honest it wasnt as thorogh as it could have been
