Take the gas filter off. Should be located near the front of the carbeurator, take off the air cleaner and look for it, it takes 2 wrenches to take it off, a little gas may spill out but not much and replace it, however there is a strong possibility that he gas pump is out if the filter is fine. Hope this helps
you may have a gold coloured filter that screws into your carb. Unscrew it and check to see if you can blow through it. It may be clogged. Also you can check for fuel at carb by loosening the fuel line going into the carb. Crank engine after loose. Should have gas coming from it.
Check the fuel filter, and i would suggest replaceing the fuel in the tank. It only takes about a month for gas to start to deterioate and if it sat that ling there is probally some junk in the tank. witch probally caused the fuel filter to plug up.
If the vehicle is still running original systems then you would need to take it to someone with 1 of the hand programmers to readjust the fuel system settings. If this vehicle has been converted over to or originally was a carborated There are typically 2-4 mixture screws depending on the unit. They will be infront of and behind the carborator. To adjust a carborated you will typically take a flat head screw driver and turn all the way to the right till they are only "finger tight" Once there, note a starting point and from there VIA each screws individual starting point. Turn them all 1 1/2 turns, this will place the carborator at the factory starting position. From there you can then start the vehicle and while it's idleing you can begin to adjust all mixture screws by turning 1/2 a turn till the vehicle looks, sounds, and smells like it is running correctly.
Another method I have seen is using a vaccume pump to register preasure, there are some video's out there to do this method and it can help you fine tune it a little more then one can just by ear. I hope this has helped you or atleast set you in a direction to getting the issue solved.
Only other 2 things that come to mind are safety neutral switch, try starting in different spots, neutral, hold key to start & move shifter slowly through the gears. Other is fusible link under hood may be bad. How hard is it to get to fuel pump connector/wires?
the fuel filter sounds like the problem, are you sure its carborated not fuel injucted because fuel injuction has a regulater for the fuel if it is stuck open you would pump gas to the fuel rail and back to the fuel tank
