You installed a new mechanical fuel pump? Make sure the lever arm on the pump is against the cam that drives it.

Disconnect the fuel line at the carburetor. Crank the engine. With each revolution of the engine fuel should spurt out of the fuel line. If you can check the pressure, 6 to 8 PSI at each spurt is about normal. Hope that helps! Jim
