You should be able to do it on the engine removing the air filter assy will make it easier, but if you remove the carb you'll be able to see if its shooting out the little hole by the throttle plate, I would try it without removing the carb first and see what happens. You can also try running a small wire (like a bread wrapper wire thur the hole to make sure its open

It's a 1965 briggs 10 hp with a flow jet carb. It doesn't seem to affect it when I turn the idle screw out..
you probably have a clogged port in the carb
those two piece flo jets have pretty small holes that if clogged can make it only run on choke i would suggest doing a thourough cleaning in some chem dip or lacquer thinner

Found the throttle plate bent in my carb. It's done some damage to the inner wall of the carb right around the idle valve area. I guess this could've been cause the choke ordeal.. Do I need a new top carb body?
i dont know if that would affect it running on choke
it prolly wont run as slow but i would just replace the shaft and plate on it
