the pistons and starter turns fine no grinding noise all the connections are clean but i have noticed the carbs havent been getting any gas /well it did at first when i pushed the throttle but now it isnt i dont know if it has enough gas in it could this be the problem? it is a new batt could it not have a good enough charge would it help if i try to jump start it?

I have learned the three things you need for engine to run.
If you have spark, then look to see if you're getting fuel. It sounds like from your post your not.
Upgrade to new tripple outlet fuel pump, replace fuel lines (even in the tank, and remove and clean the carbs. There is a little filter in each one that may be plugged.
If that doesn't do it then check the compression.

would a 3 outlet fuel pump work on a 2 cylinder engine?

i tried starting it yesterday and i noticed that the carb isnt getting any gas when i push the throttle but the fuel/water separator is still filling up. the tank is low on fuel as it is on res but the separator is filling up but as i said no gas is squirting into the carb when throttle is applied does anyone know the problem? and how to fix it? the 3 outlet fuel pump is not an option at this time but may be soon. i am getting spark, i dont think i am getting fuel but not sure, and i dont know how to test the compression
