I just slapped the Chinese carb on with proper float bowl adjustment. It was way off, FINSRUCKW nailed it.
Thanks to all for bailing me out!

Good stuff on checking float level on new carb. If you have more than one Cub that uses the same carb, its nice to have one cleaned up and you know is ready to go, while you soak and work on the problem. It's only a hobby.

Exactly 'cause I got 5. All Quietline. Two are 1200's two are 1000's and one is parts. I only use 1 and one half of them anymore. The one that this thread applies is one I gave my son. Deal: free 1200 if he mows my yard...1/4 acre

I have had good luck with Berryman carb cleaner. It’s in a gallon can like paint and has a basket the you place parts on to soak overnight, but only metal parts.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
