    I have a problem on my 15hp force.When I am just putting around at slow speed my motor starts coughing. I thought that it could be a mixture problem so i went adjusting the screw but it did not fix the problem if anything made it worse if i tried to make it richer.I did notice that one of the top jets had gas spitting out of it.If I can in time i can pull out the choke and it will get better when i push it in it starts again.When I am at at WOT or atleast half throttle it runs fine.I did at the last carb rebuild put a new float on it since i broke the original,But the new one did not look the same as the original.So could it be that its just getting too much fuel at low speed....please help and thanks in advance

    You have a low speed jet stopping up and you will have to tear those carbs down again and if that float doesn't look like the old one in atleast the same shape and size then by all means get it out.
