trouble shoot a Peugeot that won't start

1978 Peugeot 103 LVS U2 hasn't run in 25 years so I did the following which is all a novice such as myself knows to do:

- New spark plug

- New fuel mixture

- New carburetor

Then it started no problem. I replaced the throttle cable. It ran for about 90 seconds then stalled out and will not start. So I pulled the carburetor off and check the main jet to see if it may of been plugged (when I blew thru it I couldn't really tell), I opened the float bowl it was clean except for a few very small specks of something. Other than those two things is there something else I can do to make sure I didn't plug something in the carburetor? I assume there is an idle jet, but I don't know where it is.

With the carburetor back on and the fuel valve open I removed the main jet and fuel did come out. I double checked and there is spark.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated by myself and my grandson.
