Since the engine runs when you manually feed it fuel you have a fuel problem. Start at the beginning and follow the fuel system. Can fuel leave tank and make it to the pump? Is the pump working? Does fuel make it to the carburetor? If the fuel is making it to the carb you likely have a carburetor problem. Thanks 2014 Innovations (power)

If the engine runs when you squirt fuel in the throat of the carburetor it still points to a fuel/carburetor problem. Are you certain the other carburetor you tested was good? Is fuel making it to the carburetor?

I'm having difficulty getting one of my carburetor boots (intake side) to slip all the way onto the carb. What can I spray on the inside of the boot to lubricate it that will not harm the carburetor?
WD-40, or silicone spray, but my concern was those things making their way into the carb and clogging jets and passages.
