Is the electric solenoid in the carburetor staying open? Pinch off your fuel line to the carburetor, remove the electric solenoid in the carburetor and then turn on the key , and see if it retracts and holds. It should stay retracted until key is turned off. It has to have a full 12 volts to stay open.
