    780 slt no start - fuel not getting into carbs

    this machine is new to me and when trying to start - - the fuel pump is pushing fuel to the carbs - a pulsing of fuel which i suspect is normal - but it will not fire - if i drop some fuel down the carbs it fires ! so is it a diapgram problem in the carbs ? im not even sure it has a diaphram , i suspect reeds but why am i not getting fuel to the carbs and running ? i need some assistance on the steps to take . please

    Sounds like the carbs have sat with stale gas/moisture in them for a while and gum and/or rust have formed. Open them up and take a look.
