Default Engine trouble starting after flame out

Waiting on some O rings for my new engine before installing it. In the mean time still running the Losi 350. Yesterday after running out of fuel it wouldn't start easily. The problem is it's having difficulty priming again. I see bubbles just sitting in the fuel line while blocking exhaust and turning motor over with start box. What are some things that would be the cause of this? Would like to resolve this prior to installing my new engine.

Thanx

Replace all your fuel lines and double check your tank. Take out close off one inlet blow in the other while in water watch for bubbles. Also make sure your tank clunker isn't getting hung up make sure its free

Holes in fuel line/tank, or an air leak some where in the motor.
