I'm doing this on my phone so bear with me.

I'm working on my gt5000 Craftsman

It will not run without the choke on when I pulled the carburetor apart I found this little hole right there next to the half moon scratches in the side of the bowl

It does not appear to be a factory hole so I'm wondering if this is why the thing will not run.

When I spray carburetor cleaner down that little hose it sprays out right there from that hole

Yep supposed to be there. They are for the accelerator pump. They call it a Bleed jet.

 

Here check this out. Lots of holes that need cleaning. I counted 34 holes. That's alot of possible clogs.

Is it a heated one?

 

I want one of those so bad. I hand clean every carb I have to work on. It takes hours, some times a couple days to get one perfect depending on how bad it is.

Yes it is heated. 3.2l capacity. Only thing it doesn't have is a drain.

Amazon.

 

 

Harbor Freight didn't have one big enough for me to get the things I need in it.
