I have a Lance Vintage 150cc that we haven't rode in about a year. I just got it out and put a new battery, oil, and gas in it. When I try to start it, it makes that initial starting noise but the engine just won't turn over.

I looked at the engine and discovered that fuel was in the line going toward the fuel pump but no fuel in the line going away from the fuel pump.

Do I just need a new fuel pump? If so where can I get/order/find one?

Do yu mean that the engine doesn't turn over or that it doesn't want to fire? –  mikes Jun 27 '12 at 20:21
Not sure what the difference is? It just won't start lol. –  lbrown Jun 28 '12 at 13:09
Turning over means it makes the cranking noises. (As you hold the starter, the engine is making some noise.) So if it's not turning over (just a click and then nothing) it is different than turning over and never firing on its own. –  Robbie Jun 28 '12 at 20:13
