But before you get out the sergical gloves try tightening the carby and see if it does not leak, I might work long enuff to buy a gasket... And a brand new carb for one of these is $25

Yes- why wouldn't it be. You've got a GX200 clone right?

I'm not sure I understand why you need a new carb. Unless you smashed yours, it's fixable.

yeah i do and it may be, but the more i try to fix it the more it gets messed up, so whats the point of trying to fix it once more than to just buy a new carb and go from there

Because if you never learn how to fix stuff, you'll be spending a LOT of money in the long run.... I mean, it's your call- if you want to just keep tossing money at it, that's your business.
Get a manual, rebuild the carb.

Well after it ran for about 10 seconds, it backfired like out of **** . Now when I pull the cord it gets the flywheel I know but there like no pressure, and it won't run. So I gave it a small spray of gas directy I'n the carb and got nothing still, any ideas?

no pressure, no compression. If it runs for 10 seconds, dies, then it wont start and theres no resistance, theres a compression loss somewhere.
I was too lazy to read all 5 pages, so I dont know exactly what you did.
If you dont have a compression tester, take out the sparkplug and put your finger in the hole (hehehe). Pull it over at the speed you nromally would. I beleive 13psi is enough to blow your finger out the hole. Ideally, compression should be between 75ps1 and 150psi. But you need a compression tester to see exactly how much there is. I think they are no more than $20 at an auto parts store

Sounds like your problems started in step #3. What all did you change, adjust or work on that day?

i took off the throttle plate, including the arm and all linkage there, so i was left with the governor arm just pushing the throttle, and it had a return spring, which i figured out that it wasnt wrong, it just needed an idle adjustment, so i pout it all back together and tried to run it, and it started. and i did ride it, but as soon as i took the choke off, it felt starving for fuel and died, when i put the choke on and pulled, it started right up, so i thought ok thats enough for today, i put the header on and it ran, and then i did the re jet and it ran like ****, but i was fooling around in the street and i turned the choke off to see and got a burst of power. it backfired and died, i had now lost the idle screw and had been doing it by hand/spring, so i ran to the hardware store and got a screw, and it wouldnt start for ****, so i left it alone after taking apart the carb and putting it back together, next day still no start, and it was ****ing me off, so i cleaned the carb again, still no run, so i pulled the spark plug, it sparks, but theres a bit of oil at the end which leads to maybe head gasket? it has gas and gas is getting to the carb. but the plastic idle jet on the side, it used to be really tight, and now it isint, could that also be it?its got gas, spark, and intake, but it just wont run.
