We sure do, and there's a few possibilities that come to mind

Does your carb have the anti-afterfire solenoid? Look for a little battery-sized electrical gizmo sticking straight down from the bottom of your carburetor with an electrical connection on it. You'll need to feed that 12v in order to allow fuel delivery to continue. Often, this gets overlooked on engine swaps.

If that ain't it, there's a pretty good chance that your carb is clogged up with old gummy fuel or debris. This will require disassembly and cleaning.

You bet! But here's a tip- If you don't want to bother with it, remove it. Cut or saw the tip of the needle off, flush with the threaded collar. Reinstall it, and you never have to concern yourself with it again. This annoying little component is just another "pollution control" device, dreamed up to assuage the EPA gods.

The solenoid draws very little current and won't kill your battery in short order. That said- does your charging system not work?

By the way- if you look at the top right hand corner of your post, you will see a red "EDIT" button. If you goof up or want to add something to your post, use it.

if it is still dying after you get everything hooked up and squared away, you'll have to tear it down and clean it good
