My thoughts exactly.

I gave it a good kicking again this evening and pulled the plug immediately. It was dry. I removed the carbs again and checked the pilot jet which seems clear but I've dunked it in vinegar for half an hour just to make sure. I guess there could be a blockage in the internal fuel ways. What would you recommend Carter? Sonic cleaning?
