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

Make sure that the pump was installed correctly, direction of flow in and out of pump is very critical. Is the pump coming on and running? Does fuel supply hose go into top of fuel tank or bottom of tank?

Goes in bottom. I get fuel to carb while cranking. Will run on ether. Plug shows fire when removed and held against frame

Carb seems to be the trouble but where?
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

It is either the float valve not opening to allow fuel to enter the carburetor bowl, the carburetor jets may be stopped up not allowing fuel to pass through them or the fuel shut off solenoid is not operating properly to allow fuel to pass through the carburetor as it should. Can you tell if there is fuel in the carburetor bowl?
