1979 NC50 No fuel to carb bowl

Joshawa Baptista /

I’ve taken the carb off and cleaned everything but I still can not get gas to flow into the carb. It flows from the petcock but after installing the line it wil not flow past.. any suggestions would be appreciated thanks.

New to the Honda express scooters BTW

Pull hose off of carb going to petcock.

Point hose in catch/gas can. Turn on petcock and let fuel flow. Turn off and hook up to carb. Open drain screw at bottom of carb bowl and turn on petcock again. Observe and report back.

Already did that and nothing comes out.

And also I’ve checked the Inlet. Took the float off and gas flows but when the float is back on it doesn’t allow fuel in.

Tank vent open/clear? Petcock could be clogged up.

Does the float dangle freely? Is it binding?

Does the float needle look to be original or has someone replaced with wrong size?
