Tory Bilt blower will not stay runnig

Have a Troy Bilt TB320BV. Wouldn't start. Replaced reed, diaphragm, and gaskets. Thoroughly cleaned carb (twice). Checked to make sure fuel lines are routed correctly. Now it will run for 4 -5 seconds then die. I'm thinking new carb, but wanted to give a shout out to see if there might be something I missed. Any ideas? Thanks!

Does applying choke help keep it running longer?

Does it start right back up after it dies? When it dies, is it blowing smoke out the exhaust? Does it die suddely like the switch was turned off? Does it run like it should for those few seconds, or is it struggling?

Doesn't restart every time, might 2 -3 times then it's flooded. Just put a fresh rebuild kit on it- needle rocker arm, screen, diaphragm, reed, and replaced the only welch plug to clean, gaskets. took off muffler and blew air thru it to make sure it was open, replaced fuel lines and spark plug.Also it will putt to a stop when chock comes off. Doesn't do alot of struggling. does run like it should for a few seconds.

If it's flooding, I would look again at the needle. Make sure the metering lever isn't too high, also be sure the metering diaphragm is not puching the lever down an dholding the needle open. Make sure it is installed in this order: Carb, gasket, metering diaphragm, cover.
