Just a cautionary note Ryan. With the flooding problem that you're having, make sure that you pull the dipstick periodically and check the engine oil for gas. The gas will thin down the oil quickly to where it's not doing it's job and then you'll have more troubles!

Somebody is going to try to come tomorrow. He said he doesn't know what time he is getting off work but if he gets off early enough he will come after he gets off.

The other day, he came but we ended up doing some other stuff and before we knew it it was late, dark and his wife was calling to yell at him. Today a neighbor came over to help. We (mostly him) got it to run on full choke. Then half choke and then back to only running on full choke. I made an adapter so that you can put a drill onto the engine to start it, he broke it! After it broke we decided to be done for the day and that I would make another one and we would try again another time.

The fact that it needs full choke to run tells me it's not getting enough gas. Either your not getting enough gas to the carb, not enough gas getting into the carb (float setting), or that tube has a blockage in it. Shut the gas off at the tank and take the needle valve all the way out. You should get a fair amount of gas come out of the bowl in a decent flow. If not much comes out or it just drips, for some reason it isn't filling the bowl or isn't getting into the tube from the bowl. Maybe this will help narrow it down.

Is the gasket surface of the carb and the surface of the intake tube nice and flat. Run a good flat file across them to make sure. Could still be something clogging the tube. Did you ever try to stress the spark like I suggested in the other thread? Have you tried a new plug?
