Hello my name is***** will be happy to assist you.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

You either have clogged jets and fuel passages inside your carburetor, or you could have a faulty fuel shut off solenoid.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

You have already confirmed your fuel flow. Check your fuel shut off solenoid. If it is working properly, then I would give your carburetor a really good cleaning.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Your fuel solenoid should click each time you cycle your ignition switch on and off. There is a spring loaded plunger inside your solenoid, that must retract, when your switch is on, in order to allow fuel to flow within your carburetor.
