Without a kit that carb is almost twice the size of the original the original was an 8 millimeter unless you radically port it or get it a kit the volume of air necessary to run that 15 mm isn't really there I mean you can put Band-Aids on it and do all this other stuff but the original one will work better with the original cylinder it is actually designed to go with the exhaust pipe so unless you're changing everything around you won't get any kind of performance gains with a bigger carburetor I would check your seals at the base of the intake and the bass of the engine cylinder you may have a gasket lease leak or a seal leak the gasket leak would be around the engine case on the middle seam if you can find it you could actually fix it with some crazy glue provided it's a small enough leak best way to find it is to take off the cover on the stator side and just run it put it on a stand and run it for a while till it gets hot then you'll either be able to see it if you clean your engine off you will see the oil from where the leak is if it's an air leak you'll hear a sucking sound on your stator side if it's on your tranny side you'll be blowing white smoke
