Are you getting a good pulse from the engine crankcase line to the pulse ump? If you take a test line from the pulse pump inlet connection to a fuel container, do you get adequate fuel to the carburetor? You may have a suction leak before the pulse pump. As everything before the pump has to be vacuum tight, or pump will not suck!
