    Have a 2002 FLHR with S&S Super B Carb.

    Was running fine until gas line broke in half between output of petcock valve and into carb.

    Replaced fuel line. Will not start. Tries. On occasion it starts but doesnt stay running for more than a few seconds.

    Opened carb cover...can definately see gas squirt into carb

    Checked/Cleaned Spark Plugs

    New Battery with Tender on it.

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Pull the plugs and se if they are wet. When the fuel line broke, it's possible it loged something into the inlet valve in the carb. You may want to see if the fuel flows with the float bowl off and clean out the fuel petcock and the fuel inlet in the carb as well.
