Took carbs out to clean, Left carb (throttle cable side) gets no gas at all. Cleaned main jets and pilot jets, but only gettn gas to right side. Applied compressed air to main gas inlet, only to get air coming out of main jet on right side - no air coming from main jet on left side. Does any1 have any suggestions to why I get no gas to left carb.

The line of flow is directly through the float valve assembly.

If you remove the float and the valve you should get a direct flow from the fuel tank.

If not you have an obstruction between the fuel tank and the carburettor.

Float valve is plugged in left carb. Clean it.

Oh, and if the float valve is plugged, the rest of both carbs are likely filthy inside - time for a good old disassembly and thorough cleaning.

QM- Is there a further cleaning other than what is given in the Carbs 101 sticky?

Carbs should be totally dismantled and cleaned. All jets, needle and seat, and passages should be spotless.

Agree with Willy 1oo% - use copper strands stolen from speaker wire to 'rod' out the pilot jets after spraying the first time, then repeat spraying, rodding and drying with air to verify light comes thru in a nice clean spot.
