If it does it again, be aware this may be an issue.
It has the solid plastic floats. I held the pivot pin down while cranking it to see the floats in action. It starts and runs fine now so I think it just had a piece of crud in the needle seat.
I Hope I Got A Good Deal

The pump on the Hemorrhoid got bad enough fuel was going in the block even when it was running. The replacement is sitting here on my desk.

MBW, I would appreciate you telling me the make and mod# of the electric so I'll know what get for it. I found the charging problem. Another simple fix, the wire from the regulator back to ammeter turned green at the meter and broke off. Got the other wire lugs w/ it cleaned up,put a new lug on the charge wire and she charges now. Now if I can find some good used leads it'll be ready to go. I will have to order an idle solenoid. I hooked 12v directly to it and it draws juice but not enough to pull the plunger. If you push the plunger in it will barely hold in. For what I have in it I'm real happy!!

Just tossing this up against the wall, but I know that back in the day, my Yamaha XS11 and a lot of other motorcycles, had a vacuum operated fuel valve on the tank.
I wonder if one of those could be made to work?
