Collapsed fuel line somewhere from the tank to the pump, totally rusted away fuel line so no suction getting to the fuel tank, plugged fuel inlet sock inside the fuel tank. I ace seen a lot of these rust the complete pickup tube so bad that anything short of an overfilled fuel tank will keep it from getting any fuel at all.
