Craftsman 6 hp tiller runs only on full choke applied(ie. more fuel and restricted air) ...it bogs down on either half choke or no choke


I cant read even model no. what seems to be problem? how can I solve it? muffler looks very rusty and old ....

The carburetor needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Sounds like it was left with gas in it too long.

Now it does not start at all

I cleaned spark plug, air filter, changed oil and put some marvel mystery oil in spark plug hole as well as some on spark plug. Also added mystery oil in fuel tank....now this tiller does not even start...not even in choke position like before...what did I do now?
