i believe the float needle is working. it moved when i played with the float upon taking apart and cleaning the carb.

so it never even had a gas tank when i bought it. not sure how many years its been since it was running. the carb was seized. i may have had the choke on and tried kicking it quite a few times before i ultimately tried roll starting it.

it puttered pretty good and almost sounded like it wanted to fire.
could the quality of spark be an issue?
i considered replacing the plug, but i saw spark when testing it, so figured it would be fine.

i'm gonna replace the plug and then try roll starting it tomorrow.
would the ignition coil, (for lack of a better term...maybe that's accurate) need to be replaced? due to lack of quality spark firing?

would taking the air filter off help, or matter?
