Is there an electric shut-off valve on the bottom of the carb? Did you adjust the carb, if possible? Sounds like a fuel problem yet. Verify a good flow from the tank with the gas cap on & off. Post some eng #'s & please use puncuation marks. Makes for easier reading,he,he

The adjustments on these carburetors are: turn the high speed needle in (bottom of bowl) until its snug (not hard), open 2 turns. The low speed needle (side of carb) , close and back it 1 turn out. These are initial adjustments
