Gen Problem~

I just picked up the Voltage 3970 this afternoon. I filled REAR fuel with about 7 gallons of gas to start gen. (Onan 5500) We can not get it to start. If we squirt some fuel into carburator it runs then dies. SO, we think it is not getting any fuel. We are priming for 30 seconds and then trying to start.

I ready the manual and it said something about a fuel shut off valve possibly being installed. I did not see one but, didn't really look.

ANY IDEAS would be helpful
