What a great answer. I have the same exact problem after trying to start a Tecumsah after a few years of hibernation. I was getting no fuel and took the bowl off. It was full of bad gas (varnish). After pulling on the  float to hard, the needle valve came out with the spring. I thought I had installed it correctly, but after reading this post, i will check it again.

Thanks for your answer!

if you don't have a puller just back off the crank nut until the top of nut is even with threads then put a pry bar under the fly wheel and pull up and at the same time with a good hammer give the nut a healthy crack and the fly will pop off! same idea as removing old style steering wheels.
