Remove the aircleaner cover open up the choke plate wide open-pull the throttle lever back a few times do you see fuel squirting out of the accelerator pump.

Do you still have the electric pump hooked-up.

If the camshaft lobe is worned-out where the fuel pump engages it, it will not operate the fuel pump therefore no fuel will be available.
