Question about Garden
Disconnect the fuel line at the carburetor, then run the engine by priming the carburetor. If no fuel is pumped out of the line, then back up to the pump, and then to the tank itself (may be a filter issue). Is the fuel pump electric or run by the engine mechanically? If electric, you should be able to hear it running. A mechanical pump needs to be disconnected from the engine and operated manually to check it's operation. If the tank has a filter bowl with a screen in the upper part, the screen may be plugged--dig it out and wash it with spray carburetor cleaner. Once you get fuel flowing from the line at the carburetor, but the engine still doesn't run, then remove the carburetor float bowl, the float, and needle valve. The needle valve can sometimes stick closed, or debris can block entry of fuel into the carburetor. Check the jets for plugging as well. Hope some of this helps!
