The welder sat for a really long time I drained the fuel out and put a filter on it and bled the lines and it still won't start. I'm stumped any advice would help thanks
    There was a long thread on this exact topic....but. if you are 100 percent sure you have good fuel to the pump.. 12 volts supply...and proper ground to the fuel solenoid. Either the solenoid is stuck closed in the pump...or the drive ring inside the pump broke. Try gently tapping the top of the fuel solenoid /pump area.
    Also that pump can have an internal or external solenoid...take a picture so i can see. The internal solenoids must be installed correctly or that engine will run away. External just screws in. Unscrew it remove the plunger and screw it back in. Will start but have no shutoff. Will have to lug or choke off to kill it.
