Thank you to all. I did not use anything to clean out the passage ways. Torch cleaner is good idea. Will try again.

Sounds like the needle valve is sticking in the seat.Blow a little air up thru the drain hole in the carb will usually shake it loose.Or are you sure yo'reu putting the float on correctly and not jamming the needle valve when you put the carb together?

Just so you dont do what I did.... Is the valve on the gas filter turned ON? Yea, being the dummy I can sometimes be, I shut that valve off, because I smelled gas. The tractor sat for several weeks. I think I spent about 3 days trying to figure out why it would not start, before I remembered shutting off that valve... !!!
(getting old sucks) :)

I have since replaced the gas filter gasket so I dont smell gas, and thus dont need to shut off the gas valve.

When you clean a carb you need to soak it in a good carb cleaner. Then you need to blow out the passage ways and also poke them out and spray them out with carb cleaner then poke them out again. I a use torch tip cleaner tool to poke out the passageways. You also need to make sure the float is set right and when you pull the carb drain plug you need a good steady flow of gas that will fill a pint jar in under 3 minutes
