Cleaned carb & installed a kit?? Have you tried a New plug in it yet??? If you didn't put a kit in it, I think it's kinda like washing you feet with your socks on,,,LOL... Sometimes it works,,sometimes it does'nt... Clean it again in a bath type cleaner,, rinse with a spray type cleaner & blow clean with compressed air & install a new kit..Also verify the intake isn't cracked & the gasket & bolts to the engine are tight & nothing is drawing air..

It's still clogged in the carb somewhere and needs better cleaning.
