If when you drain the carbs, the gas is not clear and clean, repeat the process. Usually, you can get the fuel pump to pulse by clicking the kill switch on/off a few times - at least enough to refill the carbs. Also, after a couple drain/refill cycles, let fresh gas sit in the carbs overnight - that can dissolve some gunk. Then do the drain/refill a few more times. What you want to see is clean, clear gas come out of the carbs before even trying to start it up...
