I’ve had some problems getting my 52 8N to start reliably. I finally narrowed it down to the fuel. Not getting any in the carb (MS tsx 33).

When I open the drain valve at the bottom of the carb, nothing comes out. Glass bowl is fine, line to carb is fine, and carb inlet brand new. If line is detached, fuel flows freely. Somewhere in the carb, the fuel is blocked. I took the carb apart and cleaned it (carb cleaner) then replaced parts with a replacement kit From tractor supply. Got everything put back together, and still not getting fuel into the bowl of the carb. It’s getting into the carb just fine but not down out of the carb drain bolt.

Not very familiar with how these work. Is it possible I didn’t clean the jets or other parts well enough?
