It's probably the fuel pump. The gasoline flowing through the pump cools and lubricates the electric pump motor. Running it dry (out of gas) often burns out the pump motor. HTH. -Jim

If it won't run a few seconds on the starting fluid you either have no spark or it's jumped timing. Check for spark. If you do have spark, do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
