Yes I know its a dumb question but I promise to only ask it once.
The only 2 stroke motors that run in any position use pumper carbs
with diaphrams like a Walbro
Pumper carbs can also draw gas up from a gas tank

The carb with float bowl on the Chinese 2 stroke needs to be fairly level
to run properly and the gas tank most be higher than the inlet.
