Fuel delivery system check from back tank to Carb. In tank fuel pump? Why do you say Carb? Looks like stock it was fuel injected. Read this: http://www.justanswer.com/dodge/2zn6f-88-dodge-dakota-3-9-new-fuel-pump-fuel-cycles.html So If you have a different system. I am at a loss, other than the basics of fuel pump, fuel filter, Float level in Carb. Jets in the carb.
The filter should have three hoses. There should be an arrow painted on the filter showing the direction of fuel flow.
And you should be able to blow in one end and the air come out the other if direction is correct.
The line to the pump should be on the end without the extra hose.
Ramping, no start - is significant. it would indicate that possibly the low fuel was agitated due to the stiff angle and dirt, sand, sludge inside the tank was stirred and got inside the intake port of the fuel pump/filter;
Fuel Filter - to my knowledge, there is no actual separate filter. There is a screen incorporated into the fuel pump, or in some versions in the fuel pressure regulator. Both are on top of the tank. Looks like you have to bring the entire tank down and check the inside, pump, regulator. Additionally, it may help to use a carb/injector cleaner (pls select appropriate type gas or diesel) when filling up the tank so as to clean hopefully the fuel lines, injector pump, injector, combustion chamber and valves.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
