Mariner 50 boat engine no petrol to carburator

Good day,

I have not started my boat for a few months, now it wont start at all.

Its a 3 cylinder engine.

I have checked spark on the plugs and it is 100%.

I have traced the petrol and I get pressure all the way past the petrol filter, but no petrol in the carburetor.

Does anyone have advice on this ?

your fuel has probably varnished in your fuel line to the carbs, try to take the line off and use a LITTLE carb cleaner to clean out the lines.
