Replaced fuel, fuel lines and filter. Cleaned out float valve base. Have new gas at float valve.

Here’s a wild gander: Have you checked the fuel pump? (If it even has one; I’ve never heard of these kind of engines)

Could also be electrical wiring or a flow valve being shut (our Honda lawnmower has a fuel cut-off valve).
