    What engine?
    What carb?
    Is there a fuel switch/tank selector?
    Is there an inline fuel filter?
    Have you filled the bowls and started the engine and they run dry?

    additional to afore mentioned suggestions..... possible tank issues? Clogged or broken pick up sucking air? Clogged or non-existant tank vent? Delaminated rubber fuel line causing a blockage in supply? Clogged fuel filter? Clogged filter screen in inlet of carb? Loose clamp on fuel line allowing air in instead of fuel draw? (path of least resistance)

    Isolate problem..... after trying Budweisers recommendations first, take the next step and get a small gas can disconnect the fuel line at the "T" or tank selector valve etc. and submerge it in the gas can. re-primee carb and give it go. Also.. keep good fire extinguisher with in quick reach, prepped and ready go just in case something weird happens. safety first. Hope this helps

    As mentioned, remove the mech pump and check filter. And is the cam lobe that pumps it worn?
