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

The first place that I would check are the main jets of the carburetor. If you will remove the bolt/nut that holds the carburetor bowl on you will find three to four holes or jets in that bolt. You will need to thoroughly clean those holes in order to get fuel to pass through so that the engine will have a chance to run.
