Lack of fuel or spark.
Get it where it will not start again,remove a plug wire and attach a spare plug to it.Lay it on the engine and crank it over.See if there's a good spark.
If there is,open a carb drain screw.See if the carb has any fuel in it.One carb should hold about half a shot glass of fuel or so.

All of the carburetors have fuel except for the right front one

It seems to me like you have a couple problems. One carb is running dry, and you might have an overall low-fuel situation. On the 'problem' carb, the float may be stuck. Try tapping the carb gently but firmly with for instance the handle of a screwdriver. For the system as a whole, try replacing the fuel filter, and run several ounces of Seafoam through each of several tanks of gas.

Keep us posted as to progress.
