I have a 1979 yamaha enticer 340 deluxe, I was getting it ready this winter and it ran fine. A couple days ago i tried to fire it up and it died, now it wont start. Upon inspection, i saw there is no gas coming from the tank to the carb, just a little before the pump and after. It will start with gas down the cylinders, I also tried to prime it by blowing through the gas tank but all it does is push air through the lines its not pushing gas out, any ideas? Oh and i also found dark brown chunks on the bottom of the carb bowl if that helps any. Any ideas?

Yes check the fuel pickup line in the gas tank. Over time they rot away, if you need to replace it replace it with tygon as that is the only stuff built to be immersed in gasoline for years at a time. Always clean your carbs every year as well.
