Help! I am trying to revive my 9N that has been setting for about three years. New battery, new plugs, new gas, new fuel bowl & fb gasket. When I crank the motor the gas is not flowing to the carb. I have turned on the gas and the fuel bowl is full but gas is not going through to the copper gas tube to the carb. How do I fix this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There are three filters, one is in the carb elbow. Disconnect the fuel line there and see if you have gas flow. If so your blockage is in the elbow filter. If still no flow check the two filters in the valve at the tank.

Take the line off the carb. Turn on the gas. If you have flow there turn the gas off and remove the elbow in the carb and make sure it is not clogged up. It should have a screen filter which commonly clogs and causes problems. If it is not clogged then pull the carb drain plug and make sure you have a steady flow of gas out of that. If no gas good chance the float is stuck closed and the carb will need to be opened up and probably rebuilt

Not much to add to the good advice you already got, except
that the line going to the carb should not be copper.
Copper will crack with vibration. It should be steel.
Standard 1/4 inch steel brake line works great and has the right
fittings on it. If your local auto parts store sells it in 30 inch
lengths like most do you won't even need to cut it.
Just bend it, attach it and go. Cheap and easy peace of mind.

As Royce said the copper line will crack and I attest to it. I have the steel line awaiting me getting a 'roundtuit' (I know I have one here someplace)

I have seen situations where the fuel flow will stop if the sediment bowl is over tightened. I don't know why, and I probably should...but maybe this will help.

I doubt you have a copper fuel line, unless you installed it yourself. Copper will not last long.

Post back with your results.
