That's what I thought. You may already have clogged discharge nozzles, but that is easy to fix as you can pull them with the carb on by removing one screw. Use a piece of fine copper wire to clear them as it is softer than the brass they are made of - do not use anything hard like a drill bit or steel wire.

With them off you can check that the pump itself is working, but make sure you take out the ball check and the weight that holds it down first or they'll go flying when you hit the throttle. Don't ask.

Again, you need a clear filter. Without it you don't know that you are getting gas to the carb. And, you have a good chance of silt getting into the carb unless you are running a new and clean tank.

I along with Gary (and probably everybody else) am still confused as to exactly what you're talking about, though. You said "the jets" but then later you said "No, I didn't mean the jets, but this other thing, I don't know what it is or how to describe it."

Pictures can say 1,000 words and eliminate confusion, please post some.

i just went out and tried to start it. choke on. and it will NOT start! it would fire just a bit after i cranked it for a long time, but no where near starting. i dont think i am getting fuel. so i will get an inline filter. i will get a new filter for inside the fuel pump. and i will blow out the gas lines!

I agree with Chris.

Also, some engines won't start w/o the accelerator pump working. If yours isn't working then it may well be the problem. But, if you don't have fuel it won't start regardless.

I would want to verify if you're getting fuel or not, by first using a fuel pressure gauge. Remove the gasoline inlet to the carb and install it on the gauge; crank the engine for a bit and see what kind of pressure you have. IIRC it should be 4-5-6 or so PSI.

A clear inline filter can let you see if gas is making its way to the carb, that's a good thing to know.

When did this problem begin? How many carbs have you rebuilt?

Good to know that we all make mistakes at times. I know I felt retarded as all get out about that one.

Picture problems

I keep trying to upload photos of the new install along with what was in the truck originally and it keeps telling me the upload has failed even when I reduce the quality of the picture . I really want to show yall how good this new intake and carb look on the engine.

What is it and why the for sale sign? I know I have gotten frustrated at times but I guarantee you you'll look back and regret getting rid of the vehicle if it is in decent shape because it's hard to find older trucks in good shape atleast around here in MS it is.

The mechanical advance curve is tailored to the maximum advance the engine can use under load, the vacuum advance curve is tailored to the maximum advance the engine can use under light load. The purpose of the vacuum advance is fuel economy.

I just looked at the instructions, I don't see that one requires removal for the other. It is a GM style design with easy to adjust mechanical advance. The instructions state that the vacuum advance adds 10 degrees to the curve when the vacuum signal is applied.
I looked at the manual again and it is the mechanical lockout that replaces the vacuum advance. I am guessing this sets the timing were it stays the same no matter what load your under. I interpreted that as meaning to have a mechanical timing set you had to replace the vacuum advance.

Hey Shaun did any of that red tape get settled on your truck yet I know the last comments I saw on it you still weren't certain as to what was going to happen. Just figured I'd ask for an update on how that's going for you?

Sorry for all the posts but I have a ton of coffee in my system and no money to work on the truck or go somewhere and all I can do is read and comment on stuff right now as well as ask questions or I'm going to go insane sitting around the house!!!

I'm saving up the cash to pay the title fees before I make any more moves on it.

I hope it all works out for ya. by the way I missed why you were having to change out the transfer case. But it looks a whole lot better than mine right now. It is leaking fluid from around the front output shaft atleast that is where it looks like it is coming from, it may be the input shaft from the transmission but I don't think so. aghh way to much caffeine feel like I am about to start bouncing off the walls.
