Thanks for this information. There is a fuel shut off solenoid, that screws into the bottom of your carburetor. This part should click each time you cycle your ignition switch on and off. There is a spring loaded plunger inside your solenoid, that must retract, when your switch is on, to allow fuel to flow throughout your carburetor.

Due to the fact that I cannot see or hear your engine, I must ask troubleshooting questions, and make suggestions, in order to get to the source of our problem. I have no way of knowing what actions you have already taken, without asking or you telling me. I did not conclude that your fuel solenoid is your problem. This was only a starting point toward troubleshooting. It is always best to know what the problem is before replacing parts. I rather not guess. You are more than welcome to request a refund. I do hope that all goes well for you. I will opt out. Have a great evening!
