I have already confirmed that plenty fuel is flowing into the fuel bowl with no restrictions. There is only a little filter at the bottom of the gas tank at the beginning of the line that leads to the carb. Fuel flows into the bowl quite easily. For $20 I can get a new carb with a 3 year warranty off ebay. Sounds like that may be my next step.
