Stubborn Simplicity Hydro 15 horse

I changed oil, fuel lines, plug and fuel filter and have not been able to get it to do anything since then, unless I feed fuel into the air intake. What am I missing?

To me it sounds like it's time to tear the carb apart, Soak it in a bath type cleaner & install a repair kit, (and a float as well).. What do you have for an engine?? The numbers from it & the make would help the pro's a lot if im not right, but @ least let them know what you'r working on,,,, Roger

Did you do maintenance as preventative or corrective?
How was it running before the service?
Engine make and numbers also very helpful
