oil was drained before taking picture, but I tend to think 15 to 1 with no bushings or bearings is too high, 10 would be better, but messy. I went back and looked at crank to make sure the crank pin...

Your DLE55 may have a knock off Walbro carb, it was pretty common for people to change to a genuine Walbro and have all their problems go away. No way to tell the difference by sight that I know of.
