Everybody had a crack at this problem, another thing would check is these engines sometimes have a primary fuel filter inside the tank itself. Drain the fuel and gently blow compressed air back through fuel line towards tank then rinse the tank out with fuel, refill and try run engine again

Hi mate, you are in the rite direction you definetely have a fuel blockage, if it is doing the same as it was before you pulled it apart and you found debris in the carby i would first be looking at the fuel screen its a little cast alloy bowl, undone with a 10mm spanner next to the float bowl on the carb and also there is another filter inside the fuel tank itself, you can blow compressed air gently back thru your fuel line to clean this out. Other than that you will have to strip the carb down again, as in the attached image you will have to remove, clean (blow out with fuel and compressed air) and reassemble the following # 5 #11 #27 and #28 ensure all these are clean and the holes they go into, take extreme care when blowing out components on a carb you can pop out your needle seat and cause damage so be gentle, and wear eye protection!
Hope this helps you out:)

is the oil over full ??? then i would suspect a crankcase breather issue which should be in the valve cover... then I would be looking at a head gasket issue, rings or all of the above
