I'll try that, thanks.
I would NEVER run a fuel line from an old gas tank into a carb!! One spec of crud gets into the carb and that spec of crap will drive you nuts.
Just for the heck of it tap the side of the carb a few times with the butt end of a screwdriver handle. Your floats may be stuck closed so you are not getting any fuel.
And all carbs need to be adjusted when installed
