Solenoid at carb has to have 12 volts to open anytime the key is on. DO you have voltage to.
Do you have old carb? Does it have solenoid? Remove the old solenoid, and cut the tip off, and install in the new carburetor as a dummy.
You have checked for spark at the plug?
I see question is still open. Please rate to close and get me credit! Thanks
