  • Float level too low and not allowing fuel in.
    Plugged /dirty filter. One inside the tank, one at the top of the glasss jar and the last is in the brass elbow at the carb.
    Pull the bolt at the bottom of the carb, How much in 30 seconds?

  • You found your problem.
    No fuel flow.
    Pull the line out of the carb and check again.
    Most people start at the top, I start at the bottom.
    Do you have one of those after market plastic in line fuel filters or other?
    I have seen those stop flow.

  • Uh.. . . .
    Brass fitting with a barb on it screwed into the bottom of the carb.
    Clear hose, 24" over barb, open end held up to the sky.
    Open fuel valve.
    Fuel Line in hose will match fuel level inside carb.
    Should be just below gasket.
