You may need to clean or replace the fuel lines and replace the fuel pump and also clean the carbs.

That has a Lucas fuel pump. Do you hear it clicking when you put power to it? There should be a clicking noise. If not, these can usually be fixed with a minimum problem. Take the plastic cap off and look at the points. if they are pitted, file them smooth. set gap and try again.
