The clutch nut is tight also. Only thing i did different is I switched from tq fuels 30% to maxys 25%
usually if no fuel, or very little enters the engine it is due to a air leak in the tank. get some new clean fuel line, take all the fuel out of the tank and put the fuel line in top of the tank lid nipple
now block the fuel exit nipple and blow through the line, it should give resistance when you do this. If you get no resistance your tank has a leak. make sure that you take your finger of the fuel exit nipple before you stop blowing through the line or else you will get fuel coming up through the fuel line
another way to test the tank is put it under water, and do the same as above.
could also be a leak some where int he carb? it may have come loose.
