What I’m curious about is whether opening the float bowl drain screw will break the vacuum and just drain everything out of the line but not allow any additional fuel from the petcock.

Regardless it seems theres issues with either the bendix (starter pinion) or drive belt components. Cranking it over the starter isn’t spinning the wheel fast enough to get it going and just binds down. Almost has that low battery sound but does same thing when hooked up to jumper cables. I’ll take the pinion off and wire brush clean it out, regrease it and remove the belt to see if that makes a difference in speed of the starter. Gotta be something to tight to allow it to spin.
