I would suspect the empty lines kicked off enough rust to plug the gas filter. Been there, done that.
Oh, be sure you put the filter in right side up, the center outlet goes to the carb and the top outlet goes to the return line.
And a $20.00 carb kit will do it wonders usually, they (all carbs) are supposed to get a kit every major tune up or when you need plugs. Most are badly neglected...
