Most of the time, the fuel tank is above the carb, and if that is the case, there is no fuel pump, it is just gravity fed. Your problem is likely a clog somewhere between the bottom of the tank and the carb. I would start by disconnecting the fuel line from the bottom of the tank. When you do this, fuel should start pouring out pretty quickly. If it does, then the problem is somewhere in the line or the fuel cutoff switch if it is in line. If it doesn't come out, or comes out slowly, then your problem is in the bottom of the tank, and you will have to remove it and drain it so you can clean out whatever is gunked up in the bottom of it.
