I honestly haven't taken the oil bath air cleaner off while running. Have looked down the barrel of the carb and it's super clean. Could be a stuck choke. Plugs are black as can be with soot on them as well, and they are only a month old. I cleaned them up but I guarantee they will be black.again very soon. I havent seen any fuel overflowing on the base but that doesnt mean it couldn't be that either could be flooding inside just enough.

couple of truly important parts in the rebuild kit includes a new accelerator pump plunger and cup and the needle and seat assembly...rest is basic gaskets, a clip or two and of course often new check balls for the pump assy. to be effective...wonder how many here seat these balls first before rebuild?

thus my comment......why not critical for the most part and often not ever a problem, it is just a step I take to ensure no problem..good through cleaning and inspection is warranted as small particles will imbed here also...after all, it is about the lowest spot of the carb that is a sealing surface...
