Did taking it to church do any good?

When you cleaned the carburetor did you clean the main jets that are located in the bowl nut? There are three holes in the bolt or bowl nut that holds the carburetor bowl on, if these holes are not clean then it can cause you to not get fuel therefore the unit will not run. By pushing the primer in you are bypassing the main jets.
