If your engine will start up and run briefly, this indicates that our problem is either fuel or carburetor related.
How old is the fuel you are using?
Have you checked your fuel shut off solenoid? Your fuel shut off solenoid should click each time you cycle your ignition switch on and off. It has a spring loaded plunger that must retract, when your ignition switch is on, to allow fuel to flow within your carburetor.
This part is located under your carburetor. It will have wires attached to it.
