I have 2 of these on my boat. Your vidio sounded very familiar.
I'm betting when you took it out you stired something up. Remove the carb, then the bowl, and spray out with carb cleaner. You most likely do not need any parts.
It's easier than it sounds:
- 2 10 mm bolts hold the carb to the manafold (top and bottom)
- 2 wires for the electric choke
- a plastic clip for the throttle linkage. Press down and in and it snaps off.
- fuel hose
- perhaps a crankcase vapor hose
- 4 screws to take the bowl off
-the main jet screws out easy. Idle jet often falls out in you hand when inverted.
- Float comes out by pushing the hinge pin through; a small nail should do. clean the needle valve.
Also, it sounds a bit lean. If there is a mixture screw, turn a half turn counter. However, most new engines don't have this. E-10 is the problem (it's a bit leaner).
Yup, I've done it once or twice.
Fuel pumps and filters are also problematical, but since it ran under load, not this time. Good spares to have, though, since they are really easy to replace.
