Question rough idle/stalls

just rebuilt my 97 trailboss 250 carb. no improvement. still will only keep running with choke on and idles hard. when choke is removed, the idle will smooth out for a few seconds then die. will only start with help of starting fluid. has oil block off and 40:1 fuel. any suggestions? i'm lost. i have the idle air screw 1.25 turns out. thats all i know to set. no idea why its running so rough. need help.

ok i got it running now. will start on choke pretty good and runs off choke fine. has a little hesitation. to get it running i had to turn the idle screw all the way in and have the idle air screw out only half a turn. any ideas whats wrong with it? is the carb just wore?

Check compression, and if compressions good I would replace the crankseals. It doesn't sound like it has good suction, it's having trouble pulling fuel into the combustion chamber. ~Phil

how do you change the crank seals? do you need to pull the whole engine and tear it all down? or is there an easy way?

What did the compression test show? Anything under 100 its top end time.
Should pump 120.
