CV-16s No Start

Last year near the end of the mowing season, the deck lift cable broke on my old Craftsman mower. I was having trouble with the engine, a Kohler CV16s, would not run for long periods of time. So I was going to buy a new mower this year, but other circumstances prevented that. So I ordered a DSAI Kit and a new clutch cable from Jacks, and a Chinese knock-off carb off Amazon.  Mower will not start unless I prime the carb. Then it dies as soon as the primer is burnt up. When I installed the carb, I adjusted the governor and throttle according to the manual. I notice that the throttle arm does not move at all when adjusted to factory specs. I'm wondering if the speed control bracket is not mounted correctly, but I cannot find any settings for that. I would appreciate any help.
