Running lean! At high speed or any speed governer cycles to richen carb up and spits out the exhaust while doing it. I can remove the air filter and stuff a rag in there completely to shut off air supply then it will smooth out and run right. Pulled carb removed float bowl all seems fine in the bowl sprayed carb cleaner in all passages reassembled and it still does the same thing.
Oringially this carb had a float bowl with the electric solenoid to shut off the fuel but I replaced it with one that doesnt. Just has me baffeled at this point any help?

All this started after I replaced the bowl the first time shortly afterwards it started acting up like this but not this bad! I replaced the bowl again and it staightened up again but now has gotten to this point. Still think the carb is the issue?

Iam pretty sure there is no leak there (intake and carb) will check again tho!
Thanks for the offer let me do some work on it and if I fail again will contact you for shipping info and send your way.
Thank you for the info and help!
