Thanks. I will take a look at the cannon plug too.

Based on the symptoms it seems likely there could be a plugged pilot jet so it is having trouble to pull in gas when starting or idling. I might try sitting some seafoam in the float chamber and seeing if it will clean out the jets a little. Worse case I might send the carb out at the end of the season for a rebuild.
