    The oil can be easily explained. The crankcase breather is connected to the carb via a tube from the valve spring access cover. When you choked the engine by hand, excessive vacuum created in the carb tries to suck oil out of the engine. Follow me so far? The running problem your experiencing is probably a clogged jet within the carb. You'll need to remove and totally dissemble the carb to clean all of the tiny orifices. Take your time and pay real attention to where all the parts go. If you've never cleaned a carburetor before, this is a great one to do it for the first time.

    I use some safety wire to get into all the little orifices. Be careful not to damage them. Compressed air goes a long way in helping clean out all the passages too. Take your time and make sure everything is clean and free of any corrosion.

    Don't paint the inside of the bowl. The gas will eat the paint, and cause it to clog up. If there are no holes in the bowl, try to scrub it clean with some sandpaper or a small wire brush.

    You risk having anything you apply to the bowl coming loose and clogging a jet. I would clean it thoroughly and install a new in-line fuel filter to prevent further contamination. If the bowl itself is rusted, replacement depends on how clean you can get it. If it doesn't come clean, you'll need to replace it.

    These new ethanol "enhanced" gasoline's can cause a lot more damage to small engines. I buy all of my gasoline for all of my small engines at a local ethanol free gas station. I won't even run any ethanol in my motorcycles if I can help it.

    Even better than safety wire is a set of torch tip cleaners.

    You can bend the ends of them to fit in the tiny idle passages in the throat of the carb for easy cleaning and they wont break off like a piece of wire can.

    Thumbs up Great idea

    Be careful if you go that route. It's a great idea, but if you get too aggressive, you can change the diameter of the jets and effect how the engine runs. The chances of this are very small though.
