    I've read a number of issues on this related to Carb adjustments but when I start my TW sometimes it runs and ticks, sometimes it runs, gathers revs then backs down to die.



    I've adjusted the pilot jet in and out and 2 turns out plus played with the slow running screw up and down.



    Any ideas or should I just try and find a new Carb?



    All looks well inside, all clean and fine and no issues on accelerator cable and return, i.e. not sticking inside...

    Float height could be way off.

    OK - float related makes sense, when I cleaned it the pin was a bit bent, I straightened it out but maybe that's stopping the float from settling.
