sounds like a air leak- -- im guessing the stater side-(behind the magneto/electrical unit-) main seal-- pop it out - new one in- 12-15 bucks
or might be the carb boot leaking air- if its dry rotted-
crab isnt hard to clean-- take pics ,and nots when tearin it apart- clean the pilot jet- ,and main-
but if its startin i dont think its the carb-

yes make sure carb slide is going down to bottom adjust throttle cable that is if revs out means when it starts it runs wide open with no throttle control
