Question about Garden
I don't know how you installed the daiphram, but I remove the carb with the tank attached, then I take the tank off. with the tank off and the diaphram removed, I dump the tank out and then blow it out with compressed air, then I put in a little gas and afew driveway stones ( as big as will fit ) put the lid on and then holding my fingers over the holes give it a nice long shake. 10 minutes or so. Dump out the gas and the rocks and take a look in there, still don't look like new? do it again till the gas you dump out looks like it's clean. That little pocket in the top of the tank is where the main jet gets it's fuel make sure this is clean too. the diaphram pumps gas into this pocket and then the main picks it's fuel from have the extra just overflows back into the main tank, The main should have a screen around it and you can remove it clean it and put it back on you should be able to blow though to the inside of the carb though the main. once it's all clean make sure the spring that rests on the diaphram is in place and put the tank back on the carb put gas in the tank and shake it up, ( fills the pocket ). put it back on make surethe gasket still seals ( it's OK to rese it just seal in on if it's firred up) it should start right up as long as the plug is clean and it's firing.

Here is a link to a couple of my Tips. And even though they are for weed eaters and such, the same concept applies to your carburetor. The key to carburetor cleaning is the Den Tek Brush!
And depending on how bad your corrosion is, you may end up needing to buy a new carb. Corrosion may keep the parts from moving freely; such as the float.
