Default G14 wont fire

My g14 gasser just all of a sudden quit on me. First I pulled the carb and cleaned it, didnt fix it. Then I adjusted the valves, didn't fix it. Changed to clear fuel lines to see the fuel, has fuel. Hit it with starting fluid and it still wont fire. Check it for spark, has new plug and spark. Checked compression, it has 150 pounds. Pulled the fuel pump and took it apart and cleaned it up.

If I just sit there and lightly put my foot on the peddle it might catch here and there, pop and sputter. If I give it full throttle it wont even try.

Not a clue what could be wrong.

Check to see if the throttle cable is opening the butterfly on the carb. Might be broken cable.

Pull the valve cover off and rotate the motor by hand to see if the valves are working correctly. Also make sure the valves are closing completely.
With 150 compression, I would think that they are closing.

How much fuel flow should I be seeing in the line? Its flowing but its not a solid stream, its interrupted by air pockets. I would love to figure it was fuel delivery but it wouldn't even fire on starting fluid.

Seem to be working fine when I did the adjustment.

You won't be able to see any flow while starting. Maybe bubbles moving around a little.

This morning, with the popping and sputtering trying to start I thought the valves were loose.
