Troy-Bilt products now are usually produced by Mtd, the ratio being 40:1.
However since John Deere made yours I'm 99.9% sure it should by 32:1.
In any case any power equipment you own (including Dolmar or Stihl) that takes an oill/gas mix benefits in the long run from using the richer 32:1 ratio. It protects the piston and cylinder much better, giving your equipment longer life. Do not use the "one mix for all" that you find at retail stores as it has been my experience it really isn't "one mix for all". Seen a lot of scratched pistons and broken rings from people using that.

Your adjustments to the carburetor may make it worse.
Plus if the fuel mixture is over 30 old, I would replace it.
Manufacturers have told us this year any gas over 30 days old is considered bad gas and needs to be replaced. I would try some fresh gas(from the station) and some new 2 cycle oil at 40:1 Ratio(3.2 ozs 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas).

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)
Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.
