Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Was there any work done to the engine just before this problem began?
Thanks, ***** ***** did the carb, did you also replace the gasket behind the carb? If so It may be installed incorrectly. To check this, you will need to remove the carb from the engine again, then inspect the alignment of the base gasket. There is a hole in the face of the block that provides a pulse for the fuel pump, if this hole is blocked, the fuel pump will not function properly and basically you would run out of fuel in the carb.
Let me know what you see there.
