Question about 1987 Dodge Raider
Lightly tap the CARB after or while cranking.If the vehicle has been in-op, the fuel in the bowl would have gone bad or dried out leaving a degree of corrosion behind. After soaking in fuel overnight, Tapping may permit the float to drop opening the needle valve. Chk the accelerator pump by working the throttle linkage. kEY OFF! lOOK INTO THE CARB TO VERIFY ACCELERATOR PUMP FUNCTION.. If you are pumping fuel, it should start. If no fuel, The pump may have dried up. Again, a good soaking overnight may swell up the plunger in the pump enough to get it working. Worse case scenario if none of this works is rebuild the CARB. Good Luck and be careful. _N_
