Make and model number of the engine. Single cylinder or twin engine? Check the fuel solenoid in the carburetor. When engine is cold , turn the key on and off, listening for the fuel solenoid click each time key is turned on and off. Then when engine dies, turn key on and off, listening for the click, if no click, no fuel.
