The carburetor has an electric solenoid in the base of it. It has to have 12 volts to it from the time the key is turned on, until key is turned off. Do you hear the solenoid click if yu flip key on and off? It should click as you tunr on the key, it blocks the main jet in the carburetor, so if it does not open, you get no fuel.
