Sounds like a standard case of the pilot jet being clogged. Happens very easily if the carb sits and dries out for a while, and it may even look open. A dried film only .001" thick will change a #45 jet effectively into a #38, way too small to work. Visit the topic, "Common Threads", and look for "Cleaning Jets and Carb Passages".
