Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. There is a fuel shut off solenoid, screwed into the bottom of your carburetor. Check to see if your solenoid clicks, each time you cycle your ignition switch on and off.

Check to make sure your choke is fully opening. We can continue from here. Thanks!
