Hi

Thank you for that

I looked it up you have the mechanical pump

on the engine , click here , loosen the line

that goes up toward the carb, crank it over few times

and see if you have gas coming out while cranking

If no, then your line in the pickup tube is not connected

or loose , recheck that

I hope this helped you
