7hp Briggs/Craftsman mower run perfect..without filter only?

I have a 7hp craftsman mower and just ordered a new carb for $30 off Amazon, installed it, cranked up first time...fantastic. Until I put the air filter back on. It runs perfectly until I put the air filter on. It runs fine with the filter box/housing on but as soon as you put the filter on top the housing the engine dies immediately. The filter is nearly new, very clean, the filter housing and gasket are on correctly. Help engine model number is 128602-0259-e1

Even though the filter is new if the mower was tilted wrong or the engine overfull of oil the filter could be saturated with oil or gas causing it to die. Have a good one. Geo

Agreed, the air filter is or has been wet with gas and or oil at some time.
