Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
First check to see if you are getting a steady flow of fuel from your fuel tank to your carburetor. If you are getting fuel to your carburetor, then your carburetor will need to be cleaned. You very likely have a clogged jet or fuel passage inside your carburetor.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
