I'm guessing with this one, but almost positive that you failed to set the carburetor float properly. The setting is critical, and in some of the old rebuild kits they supplied a float gauge. You only have to off a fraction of an inch and the engine will either flood, or starve for fuel.

Good Luck,

Gary
