Default Re: Am I going crazy? Why wont my fuel flow enough to the carb?

Just one fleck of debree of any kind in the carb's fuel gallery will do it. If'n you are methodical about it gently disassemble it down to the bare carb. Then go after it with compressed air and brake clean or something similar. With the carb put together you can reattach the fuel line with the float bowl off. VERY gently work the float and valve you should be able to see flow there. Last the float bowl should possible need the tangs very gently adjusted.

Adjusting the float bowl can be a bit of trial and error.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
