Weed Eater Bv1650 Blower Vac 2 cycle

Gas is spitting from the air cleaner housing. I have checked all of the seals on the Carb and they all look good. I am not sure what is causing this problem. Please Help

Remove the muffler and make sure there is no carbon buildup on spark arestor screen and exhaust port

I did take off the muffler and did not find any screen. I did find a lot of build up and did clean that out. I regained the high end throttle but now I have to keep the choke open to half to maintain full throttle ... grr I have been adjusting the carb but still no luck ... any ideas ??

Somehow I have managed to fix my issue. I took the carb all apart completely. I cleaned the entire carb out and the reassembled everything. I readjusted the carb back to the bare basics (1 1/4 turns out) and now it runs like a top.

Thank You for your help I am sure that the exhaust port being partially plugged had a lot to do with my problem.
