Poulin Pro tractor B&S Intek 21HP won't start

Mower was starting and running fine. Had to pull the deck and change a spindle. When I tried to start it back up it ran out of gas. Now with fresh gas it won't start, just cranks. Will fire up with starting fluid but will not stay running. Any Suggestions?

    Welcome aboard. When it ran out of gas some contamination from the tank likely got sucked into the carburetor. Pinch the fuel line with vise grips then remove the bowl by unscrewing the solenoid (if it has one) or the bowl bolt.

    Lucky for me it was even easier...thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I realized that any contaminant would have gotten trapped in the fuel filter first. I replaced the filter and it immediately started up.
