either the fuel got cut off, the fuel pump stopped, or the floats stuck shut.
I was thinking likely the petcock intake filters where clogged.
Or something in the gas line got flushed down there and clogged the jets.

I am going to make me a blocking plate for the petcock hole and plug it temporarily and do the vinegar trick... I want to have all the components on hand so I am going to dismantle it first then see what I need...I might go ahead and order a new fuel pump... I found some pretty inexpensive ones on Ebay. The filter when I blew through it was flowing pretty wide open
