Don't know what's going on but the carb is not pulling gas into the manifold. It's dry inside the manifold after I try and start it. There is gas in the carb when I take it off. I start with come closed and everything. Am I doing something wrong?

Clutch is tight enough, carb is fully seated and sealed on manifold, spark plugs is not wet though. I've primed it too.

I've seen a jet come in without a hole drilled in it, that could do it, might even be a clogged jet...

take off air filter, put hand over end of carb - turn motor and see if hand gets wet - if not, take carb apart and see what's wrong
