2F running great in drive thru line today and she shut off. Will turn over but nothing won’t start. I’m not seeing fuel in the bowl of the carb. Where do I start?

Check your oil too and see if it smells like gas. That would signal bad fuel pump as well.

Another easy check; do you have enough gas in it?

X2 on is there gas in the tank?

remove gas line from pump output and see if anything comes out when engine is cranked over.

could be a plug in the pickup, could be a rusted pickup, could be a rusted fuel line

The engine died while at idle? I'm hoping so, you being in a drive-thru...
Fuel filters and pumps usually have problems with full speed fuel demand. Yes, check for delivery up to the carb, maybe also tap on the carb body in the corner of the float bowl where the fuel comes in, see if it's a sticking needle valve. Maybe also take off the gascap, see if there's a vacuum in the tank...

Just fired it up after 3hrs cooling down and it ran perfect. Drove for 5 miles and it’s died again won’t start…
