    OK, daft question!
    The LINKAGE to the carb moves, but is the SHAFT actually rotating in the carb - has the screw loosened and it no longer turns the shaft?

    OK, are the fuel lines - in / out - the right way around?
    Try swapping and see if there's any difference - I think it's in at the bottom, out at the top?

    It's happened many times before.
