i had no fuel flow, under the switch is a circle peice with one hole in it, it was plugged, and it only let little drips after, so i drilled out the hole bigger to let more fuel into the carb, and then flipped the washer around under the top and its running perfectly

Switch? Circle piece? Washer?

You ran a drill into your carb?!?!

ill post picks tommarow, and no, never would do that toystory, theres a half circle plate, took that off, a little wavy washer under that, the switch turn itself, and then a peice of rubber, i drilled into the rubber peice a bigger hole, and cleaned all of it up, installed the wavy washer backwards and tada, my engine runs perfectly

Fuel valve?
Not what most of us would call a switch.
Why did you not tell tell us this valve was modified to begin with?

ive been talking to him bout this,

the fuel petcock is what he had to drill out. theres a washer with 4 holes in it and its CHEAP. made terribly. so that the fuel was barely going through the valve.

the reason why it ran for a little fine, then had to be choked, is because over time the fuel would seep into the bowl through the shut off petcock, and once it was burned out of the bowl, it was barely dripping, so not enough to keep the engine running.

long story short- the fuel valve was defective and not letting enough gas into the bowl.
