Husqvarna 227 Starting Issues

Hi folks. My two year old Husqvarna died on me a few weeks ago half way through doing the driveway. I could not get it going again. I pulled the float bowl off and there was some gunk in it, so I proceeded to take the jets out and clean them. Long story short, I'm an idiot and managed to strip the threads for the bolt that holds the float bowl on, so I bought a new carb (oem). I installed it last night and it started no problem, but it ran horribly with the choke on. When the choke was put in 'run' it worked perfectly.

Today it will not start at all. It backfires through the exhaust, and also through the float bowl. The smoke is black. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Below is a video. Thanks everyone!

As a follow up... it does not actually run perfect in 'run'. I finally got it going a few minutes ago. Crazy amounts of smoke, and then it died after 30 or 40 seconds. This happened twice.

Chinese junk carburetor? Sounds like it is running massively rich, choke on or not . . .

You shouldn't need the choke "on" for the engine to run...it should run in the "run" position, unless I am missing something.

I'm going to ask a dumb question, but did you remember to turn the gas valve back on after you replaced the carb? And is there gas in the tank?

Its hard for me to tell on the video what it sounds like, When I get home I can try to give it a listen.

Fuel is on. Tank is full of fresh gas. Occasionally it will give some pretty loud backfires through the exhaust, with the occasional flame.

My guess is the carb is ' over floating.' Check [ smell ] the oil for fuel dilution . Shut off gas, remove float bowl . Drain gas from bowl . Replace bowl , turn on gas for a minute . Shut off gas, put container under carb, and remove float bowl again. Now put your thumb over hole in bowl, pour drained off gas back in bowl , observe fuel level in bowl , should be about 1/2 full
