Fuel needle valve is to be 1/2 turn open. It has a mark on it. There is a check valve in the line in the tank. If it dont have it thatís your problem. When starting press down on choke and they start on 2nd or 3rd. Crank.

that is correct it wont run with stuck ball because it is preventing gas from being sucked into carb. the ball sticks down. in his situation he says it runs but stops. that means the ball check valve is not working or not even installed. it has to be used. i have a pile of these engines and has worked with them for 50 years. every one takes needle valve 1/2 turn open. to stop engine close needle valve.

I would start with about a turn out. Then watch the exhaust, if it's black and smoky,lean it out. If it misfires and starts coasting down richen it up. You kind of need to find a good balance where it runs clean. It looks like you are trying to feed it from a temporary tank? I don't recall if those engines need a check valve in the fuel line or not but it's a possibility.
