Hi Butch, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you checked the fuel lines going down inside the fuel tank. It sounds like the main fuel supply may be broken off just inside the fuel tank. When you removed the carburetor you say that there was no gasket, these new machines are using o-ring type seals rather than paper gaskets and the seal is recessed into a grove in the plastic flange between the carburetor and the cylinder.
