There are a couple things here. In the first place if you can pump fuel with the pump off the engine and pumped by hand doesn't mean that it will pump on the engine. See the stroke on the engine is very short, it only moves like 1/4 inch. So you could have a bad pump even though you are pumping by hand. The gas cap, will have no effect on this model. Yes the pick-up tube has a filter on the bottom of it, and it could be stopped up. You can remove this unit up through the top of the tank, got to wiggle it and turn it sideways, and if you can find a used one( New ones scarce and expensive) by going to used parts place, and look for 1967 - 1972, they are all alike. Lots a luck in fixing this great ole truck.

I smell gas fumes from the front of my 73 super beetle

You may have a fuel leak. Gas evaporates at a quicker rate then water so you may not actually have a puddle. Check the fuel line for cracks. The old fuel lines can degrade with age and extreme weather (hot or cold).

Not getting gas to carberater 1972 bug

Start with the simplest things first... remove the line from the input side of the pump... does fuel flow out nicely? If not, it's a clogged line and probably a lot of gunk in the tank... take off the filler cap and apply some low pressure air to the engine end of the line... if this unclogs it, you will hear a bubbling sound at the filler tube. if fuel flows freely, reconnect and take off the output line at the carb and, (after disconnecting the coil high tension lead and grounding it!) engage the starter, fuel should come out in a solid stream (not just a dribble)... if not replace the pump. If it does turn out to be the pump, check your oil for a gasoline smell as a faulty pump diaphragm can let oil into the crankcase. If so, change oil as well... Hope this helps...;-)

Gas smell

your brand new 1972 VW beetle may have as simple hole in the fuel line..when the car is not running you will not see any gas leaks becuase there is no call for gas to be fed to the motor.

have someone, or yourself crawl under the vehicle and look fort a small dripping or small stream of fuel.....REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!...gas is HIGHLY explosive and smoking while checking/working on the rpoblem...and fuel's smell comes from Naptha, a chemical added to oil to make gasoline, it is a very strong ordor..a small amount can smell like a gallon.
hope this helps you
