Question about Cars & Trucks
Has new fuel tank and fuel filter and fuel pump. equipped with carter carburetror. carburetor still starving of fuel.
Remove fuel filler cap and retry.
If no luck then check the engine for a vacuum leak.
You can try placing your hand over the carb intake and cranking or running the engine. If you feel a lack of vacuum, then you may have a vacuum leak. Check the intake manifold for cracks or gasket leaks.
Do a compression test on the engine. If it lacks compression, then it may also lack vacuum and may likely require major attention.

SOURCE: Fuel pump/filter?
It sounds like it could be the pump, but if you don't know the history of the filter, just change it. It might sound silly but make sure there is enough gas in the tank, the pumps normaly whine when they pump air e.g. no fuel. If the problem is not solved after changing the fuel filter (15 minute job) then when you have the fuel pump out check that the fuel pickup is attached because the problem may lie there. When you change the fuel filter let the fuel drain from the fuel rail (engine side) just incase there is an obstruction of debris there, this would be rare but I have seen it.

There is only 1 filter, its under the passenger side of the car, right before you get to the back tire... its a silver round thing, should be real easy to find cause nothing else under there has hoses going to it.
These fuel filters are hosed and connected with original crimped and tabbed connectors. You will need a special tool to remove, found in most auto parts stores.
If you like to completely tune-up your acclaim. You can remove these factory crimped hoses and buy some replacement hose and clamps to make it easier next time. The tool used to remove the original hose clamps are very difficult and tricky to work.
Sorry the fuel pump is in the gas tank:
Drain the fuel tank if possible.
Support fuel tank with something such as a trans jack or a regular jack with wood on it so it wont hurt the tank.
Lower tank just enough so you can remove all connections such as wire and hoses.
Remove tank from under the vehicle.
It is held in with a lock nut, take a screw driver and a hammer and gently tap on it till it starts to move.
Remove fuel pump from tank.
Install new pump and put tank back, make all connections and your done.
Before you do all that check the Fuel Pump relay, it's between the battery and the drivers side fender in one of those little black boxes.
Good luck and hope this helps

if it was me i would start with a new fuel filter and some STP gas treatment if you let it sit for a long time there maybe water in the gas tank and try these websites to see if they have your motorhome listed its www.autozone.com and the other one is www.alladtadiy.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your motor home

Undo the fuel inlet Banjo bolt and carefully fish with a piece of wire bent at the end (as pictured) and fish out the filter (under the spring) wash and replace. Can be very fiddly, so patience is a must.
