I believe there is a small disc shaped device on the front of the carb. Mainly to keep foreign matter out of the carb.It doesn`t affect air intake.
More than likely the carb is running lean probably due to dirt in the interior passages.
Most likely if you CAREFULLY squirt fuel mix into the carb it will run better.Indicating a need for more fuel not less air.There should be high speed and low speed adjust needles if
adjusting them doesn`t improve performance it goes back to the dirty carb.When servicing the carb be sure the fuel system is clean.
