I don't see any more kinked or looped hoses in the picture.

Kind of hard to tell exactly what I'm looking at but, is the fuel line connected to the bowl drain...

That is the carb drain hose. It's hooked up incorrectly. It should not even go to the top of the carb! It actually ties in with the tank vent hose and goes to the floor.

If that is the carb vent hose or the tank vent hose then it isn't supposed to be hooked up to the drain and yes being kinked like that could cause running issues.

Unhook it from the bowl drain, leave it hooked up to the vent on the left side of carb and leave the other end open to the atmosphere.

The carb bowl drain and tank vent are supposed to be tied in to each other and drain to the floor. Sounds like they tied in the carb drain hose to the carb overflow hose.
