Partly clogged line from the tank to the carburetor? Look at the part of the fuel path before the convergence of that fuel line with the fuel line from the external tank.

Also, did you try it again after it ran like a champ? If the problem was in the common part of the fuel path, pressurizing the line with the external tank's bulb may have blown out the problem into the bowl of the carburetor.
