There is a groove where the entire plastic case around the spring will go. It will only fit one way. Be careful when installing the spring, if it gets lopsided. IE. Part of the spring sits on the groove for the spring housing and the rest of the spring housing fits into the the groove, the spring will come out of the spring housing.

obviously it's not getting gas. remove the carb and recheck it. some have a plastic piece over the intake and output to keep the interior clean during transit. Forgetting to remove it will cause it not to get gas. Either that or the float is stuck closed, something like that. If the carb is new out of the box, they sometimes have a piece of plastic or something inside the float bowl to keep the float from banging around during shipping ect. Check that too.

Check the fuel line in the tank to see if it's plugged. Also there could be crack or air leak in the full line not allowing gas to get sucked in. Just some thoughts if you haven't looked at this yet.

Turn the screw gently clockwise until it won't go in any more. Then turn it anti (counter) clockwise 1 complete turn. That should enable it to start but you will probably need to adjust it when the engine is warm. Failure to start can be because of a range of causes so I suggest you check the basics first like ensuring the fuel is fresh, that there is spark at the plug and that the choke is turned on if the engine is cold.

All good answers here. If you have spark and it just quit running sounds more like water in system. The carb cleaners should help but you may need to run quite a bit through it. Remember to use care adding gasoline to avoid getting water into the tank. Also keep your tank full in storage to avoid condensation. In storing tong term add some sea foam and dump it out when you restart. Old gas turns yellow.
