Not clear as to what engine this would have. Do you know engine model? Do you have spark at the plugs when cranking? If you put fuel direct into cylinders and replace spark plugs, will engine fire and run for few seconds? Is there a solenoid in the carburetor? If so, it has to open the fuel as soon as switch is turned on.
