I'll suggest that while you are checking valve tappet clearances, which Need to be Set to the Upper end of Specs for best starting/longest maintenance interval, that you Inspect the Plastic choke cable attachment 'nut'. Before Pulling the Entire Carburator!
The plastic 'nut' gets broken Quite Often, causing a rich run condition.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
