Full choke the running engine and if it just slows it down a bit and doesn't kill it
you have a massive air leak probably where the carb slides on the intake tube

maybe elsewhere the gasket at the barrel

I include an O ring to seal between there or you could use some kind of sealant

Get a # 11 O ring from Home Depot
3/4" OD x 9/16" ID x 3/32"

LUBE your throttle cable good too as they come dry and may break if you don't
