23 HP Kawasaki will not start

23 HP Kawasaki turns over, checked fuel pump and it is pushing gas. Fuel pump is on downstream side of fuel pump, so the filter isPull plugs and it seems like no gas it getting in to cylinder. Suspected maybe a bad solenoid (at bottom of carb bowl) - but it is fine. Then pulled bowl, thinking maybe float valve was sticking closed, but that was fine. Pulled off carb, cleaned everything and put back together with new o-rings and gaskets.

Where should I look next? Thing was running fine two days ago. It's a Wright Stander, so could there be some safety interlock on it? The puzzling part is the solenoid pulls in, which is interlocked with the start switch, so I thought that any other safety switch would be in series with that circuit leading up to fuel bowl solenoid. Oh, and I am getting spark.
