The connection of the fuel line to a Tillotson carb is notorious for air leaks try wrapping it again with 2 separate wire wraps also check the plastic cap for cracks under the nipple. Sometimes when fuel sits in a tank it can form goop in the bottom that will clog almost anything. Same thing if old fuel was sitting in the carb for long.

Another way out possibility, maybe a crank seal popped out or a reed is broke?
