Remove the fuel line from the carburetor and have a helper crank the engine. Gasoline should spurt out as the engine is cranked. If so the float in the carburetor is stuck. Tap the carburetor on top with a screwdriver where the fuel line screws onto the carburetor. If no fuel spurts out check the fuel lune connectionsconnections at the fuel pump. If that's good disconnect the incoming fuel line at the pump and attach a hose from that line connection to a gas can and see if you get fuel then. If so the fuel line is blocked or disconnected between the fuel pump and the gas tank. If all this is ok the problem is with the pick up inside the gas tank. HTH. -Jim
