sears craftsman 1036 , model 9172552702 , engine 143..346012 , started running rough, no smoke, changed spark plug made no difference, drained carb bowl


Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with this problem. Usually when this happens, it is because the main jet is partly plugged. I recommend removing the float bowl nut and cleaning all of the holes in the nut. I have posted am image below showing what holes need to be cleaned. If you still have problems, I recommend checking the intake side for leaks. Spray WD-40 around the carburetor mounting gasket and the throttle shafts. If the pitch of the engine changes you, found the leak.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
