Hello. Thank you for choosing Just answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Many times this problem occurs, due to either a clogged jet, or a clogged fuel passage inside your carburetor. Remove the fuel bowl from your carburetor, and clean it. Also clean the three small holes in the bolt that secures your fuel to your carburetor. Re-assemble everything and try starting your engine again. Let's see if this helps.

You can use a small wire, and some carburetor cleaner in a can, to clean the three small holes in your bowl bolt. See image below.

You can remove your fuel bowl, and bowl bolt, without removing your carburetor from your engine. If you are careful, you can re-use your bowl gasket.
