That brass tube is your "main nozzle", that's where all your gas comes out. If the choke has to be closed in order for the engine to keep running, that means your not getting enough gas. So we need to make sure that brass tube is not plugged.

Yes thats the only way it will run. But its starts to want to shut off when it gets hot. So if I just move the choke over a bit it will start running right again. But I have to hold the choke where its about half way to keep running.

Carb, cleaner can damage the engine. these small engine's only have a small amout of oil and CC can delute the oil fast.

Put the tube on the WD40 into the small holes and spray in there.

No theres just a metal cover that gos over the carb. With the cover is 2 screws that hold the cover right on the carb. On the front of the cover is where the choke and on and of switch is. Or more like a key that you just pull out to shut the motor off. Just has a ground wire on it.
