Ford R8 Riding Mower Won't Start After Replacing the Fuel Line?

I have riding lawn mower Ford R8 using Briggs and Stratton engine 8HP. After I replaced the gas line, I am having problems trying to start the engine. Anyone have an idea what should I do next? Thanks.

Well if the mower worked prior to replacing the gas line I suspect something wrong with the gas line. Could it be plugged, or have a kink in the line?
I would first see if gas is getting to the cylinder or in to the carb.
I think the gas is fed to the carb by gravity so there may be a air block in the line.
Iwould disconnect the gas line at the carb and see if gas is coming out the end of the line.
