Re: Carb Trouble
The place to start is right at the carb. Rather than pour gas down the carb, see if the carb actually has fuel in the bowl. With the air cleaner off and the choke open, and obviously, with the engine off (as it won't start anyway), look into the carb and move the carb linkage. You should see a stream of fuel go down the carb throat. This fuel is from the accel pump that's in the carb bowl. No stream, no fuel in the bowl or, the pump isn't working. The needle that allows fuel to enter the bowl could also be stuck. Rap the top of the carb with a screw driver handle then, crank the engine a few times and see if you get the accel pump stream, with the engine off. Hope this helps.
