    Did you look at if you have a air leak any where? And if you prime it will it pull any fuel threw the lines?

    I would look and test to see if you have a air leak in the engine somewhere. If you prime and you get fuel and then release your finger from the stinger and you see no fuel flowing, how old is your motor? Sounds like you are not building pressure to supply fuel to the engine.

    i would replace fuel lines and clean the carb out the, hsn more likely has something inside blocking something or the fuel line has some build up in there or a slight cut not very visible.
