soaking the carb in cleaner wont solve the plug fuel jet.
take the jet out of the bottom of the bowl and run a small pc. of wire
through it and spray it well.
a small speck of dirt will stop the gas flow.

good luck, Dew

Is it just turning over by the starter?Sounds like its not idleing but just turning over sounding like its idleing.Check for spark, if its got fuel, and if its got compression thats all and engine needs to run.

check the crank seals.
maybe the governer is stuck at the clutch ? (seen that happen)
try lifting the rear end off the floor then run it full throttle by hand
and see if something is sticking

good luck, Dew

Did you run a compression test on it?
Along with the other things people have said, try disconnecting the muffler and see if it runs better. Mufflers on the 2 strokes will get clogged up and not let the engine run up rpms.
