1973 ford f 250 new carb, and gas tank. fuel pump is less than a year old. will not start/run. acts like it is starved for gas.


Hey Dutch, have you tried anything like starting fluid to see if it will run..If it will not run, try removing the fuel line going to the carb..(does this carb have a filter in the inlet fitting???)..once the fuel line is loose.. (BE CAREFUL!) ..try starting the engine and see if fuel is pumped through the line to the carb...if you are not getting gas there.. time to work backwards until you find the problem..(does this engine have the fuel pump mounted on the side of the engine,if yes.. remember the fuel pump has to "pull" the fuel from the tank)..If you are getting fuel TO the carb.. make sure the carb is "taking" the fuel..(inlet filter).if you are getting fuel to the carb,, and it will still NOT RUN..(and won't run using "starting fluid")..its time to start looking for a timed spark..(assuming the engine has compression).. when you have done this, reply back to me on here... thanks... please mark as helpful.. Good luck..

I have a 1963 chevy nova II straight-6. I am having trouble getting it to run without pouring gasoline into the carb. I have replaced the filters and fuel pump. What else could be the problem?


the needle and seat in the carburetor might be stuck shut. Pull the fuel supply line off of the carburetor and unhook the coil wire, so the engine will not fire, crank the engine and make sure the fuel pump is pumping fuel to the carb. If there isn't fuel getting to the carb then you will need to look elsewhere, like maybe the sending unit in the tank. But if you do have good fuel getting to the carb then it is probably the needle and seat in the carb.

I have a 94 plymouth voyager i had to replace the waterpump and fuel pump now it wont start it cranks over but wont start any ideas ??


Hi phcr7566...

Disconnect your fuel line from your carburator and put a container to catch the fuel as you crank your engine...
You are doing this to make sure you are getting fuel to the carb from the new fuel pump you installed...because you might be "air bound"...not allowing the fuel pump to pump fuel to the carb.If your getting fuel to the carb, them make sure the float in the carb is not stuck and not allowing any fuel to get to the engine.
Please rate me

1979 FoMoCo 4 Barrel carb. Getting good fuel flow and pressure to the carb. Engine will start and run for a few seconds then run out of fuel. New fuel pump has been installed. Can blow through gas...


is the needle opeoning on the float in the carb? The fuel bowl should be about half full all the time. As fuel pressure flows into the needle & seat, it fills the fuel bowl until the float pushes the needle into the eat. Sometimes the rubber tipped needle can stick in the seat.

Holley carb? Autolite carb? Holley 4160?

Ipulled out a318 with a2 barrell carb installed 383 4 barell I have the factory 5/16 fuel line and new factory pump on heavy acceloration from stop it tries to die then takes off and acelorates fine do I...


Sounds like the accelerator pump circuit in the carb is not squirting fuel in when you depress the accelerator. That is why you get the lag in acceleration before it decides to launch. When you open the carb you should get a steady stream of fuel from the accelerator pump. With the engine not running look down the carb throat and open the throttle blades and visually check to see that there is a stream of fuel when doing so. If not time to rebuild the carb, or just get another accelerator pump for
the carb.
