Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Can you hear your fuel shut off solenoid click, if you turn your ignition switch on and off?
Do you have a 12 volt tester light, or a multimeter?
We need to check to see if you are getting power to your fuel shut off solenoid.
If the wires that attach to your solenoid, does not have 12 volts, it will not work, and will not allow gas to enter your carburetor.
You have to have a tester to check your voltage.
Can you borrow a tester?
Remove the wires from your solenoid, and turn your ignition switch on, then check each wire to see if you detect voltage.
Thanks for checking.
You stated that you replaced your solenoid. Is your solenoid brand new?
If you are getting 12.4 volts to your solenoid, but your solenoid does not click as you turn your ignition switch on and off, is an indication that it is not working properly.
I am back with you.
Check to see if you are getting a continuous flow of gas from your fuel tank, to your carburetor. To do this, remove the fuel hose from your carburetor, and place it in a suitable container. Watch to see if your gas flows freely, and continuously.
You and I can continue from here. Thanks!
