It's not low fuel. When I run the lawnmower, I run it topped off. By the time the lawnmower stops working, it's gone down maybe 1/4 (so, 3/4 full) and I have to add more fuel to the take to "push" fuel into the carburetor.

This issue was present in my old carburetor before rebuild, old carburetor after rebuild, and completely brand new carburetor.

There are no fuel leaks anywhere.
