Is that float inside the carb hanging freely or is it stuck up, I can't tell, give it a push up and see if it moves up and down. If it's stuck give it a little tug to see if it will drop into position. If that's normal, give a shot of carb cleaner up the center tube. On the bottom of the carb, the screw usually has a fixed-orifice jet built into it, shoot carb cleaner through that too along with any other thin passages you find. Reassemble and 99% of the time it will run fine. You rarely ever need a rebuild kit on a float carb. Usually you'd need one on a diaphragm carb(the type on weed wackers) because the rubber diaphragm will get stiff or crack from ethanol fuel and it will fail to meter fuel properly.
