Could be fuel pump, pull hose going to carb and turn over to see if fuel comes out. If you are getting fuel, check to make sure you are getting "fire" at your plugs and wires. Being a '79, it should be very basic. Also since you drained Tank, was the screen damaged on sending unit/ pick up tube, it could have picked up debris. Confirm all line clamps are tight. Check the basics on fuel and fire. Good luck.
