Glad it's working.

I know you said you used pure gas but the problem with the fuel line is what I've seen when gasoline with ethanol was used. Could ethanol have been used at sometime in the past?

If not, perhaps a gas station was claiming pure gas when it was not. Apparently some stations cheat. I bought a test kit to show how much if any ethanol was in gas. The kit is nothing but a calibrated glass vial in which you add water and gas, shake it up, and watch for a band of mixed gas/water. You could used any little bottle if you just wanted to test and didn't care about the actual percentage.
