Sounds like your fuel pump in not pumping fuel...

Re: changed engines

Not necessarily the pump but something stopping fuel from getting to the
engine like some dirt that you might have gotten in the line during
the change out.

Definitely a fuel delivery problem. Does that carb have a filter screwed
into it? I'd disconnect the fuel line at the pump and see if it's pumping
and go from there.
