Oh ok. So when I spray carb cleaner through the idle jet hole, it should come out there.. Do I need to take the carb off to do this or can it be done on the engine?

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

Well I tried to spray out the idle jet with no luck. Still runs the best with a little choke no matter how rich the idle jet is set. I guess I'll be taking it apart. Dayton king says I don't need a rebuild kit but I've not been able to find a gasket kit only.. Can you buy just gaskets?

Got the carb off. I can take pics if you guys would like to see. The idle jet didn't seem to be clogged up.. I'm stumped

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?

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

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
