Ummm.... fuel pump good? Fuel filter clogged? Gas in the tank? Carb pump good?
Maybe be a little more specific.
Did he disconnect the carb line from the fuel pump, see if fuel is being delivered. Inspect or change out fuel filters. Or pull the line from the fuel pump to the tank, to see if fuel is delivered to the fuel pump. Even something as simple as blowing out the line to the tank...carefully, could reveal the cause of the problem. Also, did this just start or has there been a build-up of problems to this point?
The question is "How did he determine that fuel delivery is the issue?"... there could be other compounding problems that are disguised as fuel problems.
Dirty tank is a very real possiblity, but so is a clogged line, clogged filter. There is also the "freakish" possiblity that fuel pump diaghram is torn, the arm to the cam eccentric is broken, or mechanically inactive.
As mentioned...there is a lack of meaningful information. The statement ... "I'm not getting fuel"... leaves a lot of ground to cover.
