Another vote for a sunk, or non-existent fuel float. And another agreement on pumping that pedal. Does you no good at all to pump the gas pedal on an updraft carb unless the engine is turning. Without the upward suction of the engine turning, all you're doing is creating a bigger problem by pushing gas out into the carb with nowhere for it to go.
