Suggest you go to the Briggs website and download the IPL for your engine.
Replace diaphragm part# 394
Clean screen Part# 393
Check ball & inlet Part# 913
OR buy new carb for about $27

I'd try the gas cap vent hole first! Little bugs just love to drop an egg in those holes, and seal them up with goo!
And, if that fails, then go with Bill K's advice. Rustyj.
