2009 Rancher depression plz help

I have a 2009 Honda Rancher 420 Fm 4x4. Long story short I took it to the shop to have the case replaced and the shop doing it f**ked me over for 7 months and skipped town on me, plus everyone else he was doing business with. Leaveing me with a half done job and my top end M.I.A. So i purchase a new 1, printed the manual, and went to work. Everything back in place and the engine just turns over but doesn't start. I have went with a new ignition coil, battery(M.I.A TOO), spark plug(replaced 3x), & fuel injector. I still get the same results just turns but won't start. But when i spray gas into the carb and put the air filter back on it start and runs. But when i hit the gas it starts to die. I'm leaning towards the fuel pump but I hear the fuel pump coming on. I'm beginning to give up because of the loot I'm losing. If anyone has any info that could help me I would be unbelievably grateful. Please

Flush the fuel system, after 7 months I'm sure whatever is in the tank and that fuel pump/canister assembly is fairly ugly. There is also a filter inside that canister that can be replaced as far as I know. The injector itself may also be gummed up, so you could soak that in some carb cleaner or something, don't forget to remove the o-ring(s) that will be on it....been a minute since I looked at one.
Thanks I'm leaning towards replacing the fuel pump since the injector is brand new


Yeah I’d definitely check that out then, have you pulled the line off the injector and let the pump run just to see what’s coming out of it? The fuel pump may just be making noise and not actually doing anything.
