Hello my name is ***** ***** i will assist you. It looks like the problem is fuel related. As you correctly started troubleshooting, change the fuel filter and make sure that the fuel is coming up to the engine. Then if the problem persists most probably you would need to get the carbs rebuilt as the needles may have got stuck. IF you think you are capable of doing this job please post back and i will guide you to it.
