If you cleaned the carb thats great however if its a carb with a fuel bowl youll have to unscrew this and clean it to they have a habit of accumulating dirt and rust from moisture after cleaning bowl fuel should flow corectly without obstruction allowing smooth running operation also spark plugs are pre gapped for your mower model no need to adjust unless you bent it or are toing a custom projet such as go cart

Check your fuel tank for trash! Sometimes a leaf or something will obstruct the flow from tank to carb. Could even be INSIDE THE FUEL LINE. Happened to me before. I had a cockroach wing in the fuel line once.
