Hi Roger, I went back and re-read your first post. I forgot that you said it will start and run good if you pour gas into the cylinders. That would eliminate carburetor problems I would think. I do have two more suggestions. Weak spark or low compression. Even though you feel good suction at the carb. intake I wonder what the actual compression is. As for weak spark, if you have an old spark plug, open the gap to about 1/4 of an inch and hold it against the head with a plug wire attached of course. When you crank the engine you should see a good strong blue spark jump that gap.
