Do you have plenty of gas in the tank? I'm with Kap'n on this one. You must make sure that those pickup lines are open. Also with the pickup line that reaches down into the tank, bend it slightly forward. This will help the flow of gasoline.

Inspect those lines closely, With all the gas going forward it could "fill in" the crack in the deep pickup tube.

The carb to tank gasket has no relation to this problem. Get it replaced, as gas can leak out around the carb and tank joint.
