Possibility the line is clogged? I doubt it's needle and seat in float 
bowls, since it would be odd for it to happen to both.

Sometimes if there's some water in the tank and it gets into the fuel 
filter, the filter will stop allowing fuel through. I think maybe I 
would bypass the filter and see if the fuel makes it to the float 

Also possible the line from the filter to the carbs has deteriorated 
and stopped up.
