Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Do you have a fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

There will be wires or a wire going to it if you do. The first thing would be to check and make sure that you are getting power to that solenoid when the ignition switch is turned to the on position. If you are not getting power to it then the engine will not run on its own until you get power to it.
