Need Help with a new carburator

Hi guys new to this forum. I bought a new carburetor for kids Go kart which has a Subaru Robin EX17 engine.
it will start on choke and then quit after about 3 seconds. I did drain and replace the gas before I installed the new carburetor and I have adjusted the governor and idle. this beng a new carburetor I am not sure what else could be wrong.
 
thanks
Kris

    If your engine has a fuel shutoff then make sure it's fully open. Can you keep it running with fuel or carb cleaner into carb?

    I have not tried to keep it running with car cleaner.
     
    I managed to get it running. However it will only run when the choke was on and it backfires. I pulled the spark plug and it is black. there does not seem to be any float adjustment. all plastic float. the only adjustment screws I can find is with the idle and there is a mix adjustment screw but it will only turn a 1/4 turn either direction.
