No i only took off the short pressure line from the filter to the tank . i did not take the tank completely out just dropped the font end of it so i could get to the line. before i put the tank back up i started the car to make sure there were no leaks and it ran fine. so i bolted it back up and it would not start just pours gas out. is it possible i pinched the return line as i put the tank back up would that cause the problem ?

I had luck by removing the fuel filter under the car (located on the drivers side midway of the car) I needed to do this and when i unplugged the filter, gas started coming out, i started to put a cup but the cup started to get full so i just plugged up the line instead. This is just a thought, it might be dangerous, ( i dont know) but i would remove the fuel filter and connect the gas line to a tank or bottle or something, maybe run an extension away from the car and start to crank the car, forcing the fuel to leave the tank, that's just me thou. YOU DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, dont hold me responsible.
first you need to relive the fule system of pressure. do this by finding your fule pump relay disconecting it and start the car. it will sputer, this is reliveing fule pressure.once it stops sputering your ready to get the fule pump out. it is located in the fule tank. the tank is held on by 2 straps your going to have to take off. once you do that drop the tank and the pump will be on top of it.
This is going to sound strange but sometimes when a vehicle sits the gas drains back into the tank. This happens when there is an air leak in fuel system (lines, fuel filter, fittings in the system, etc). Place a short length of hose into the gas tank filler opening. Prepare to blow into the hose while sealing the opening around the hose and the filler neck. You can seal it with tape or just by holding a plastic bag tightly over the opening and around the hose. Blow in slowly and steadly. You want to pressurize the system and then hold the pressure to force the gas thru the fuel lines, fuel filter, etc. You want to inhale thru your nose and exhale into the hose just enough to pressurize the system. You can then exhale thru your nose as long as you hold the pressure in the hose (stick your tongue over the hose end to seal it). Don't breathe in from your mouth or you will be hating things. When releasing pressure from the hose do so gently or the gas will slosh back on you. You can have someone crank the engine while you are pressurizing the fuel system. You are just trying to move the fule that much closer to the carbs so you can get her running. Another option is to pour some gas down the car and try starting the vehicle. It will run for a short time and allow the fuel pump to pressurize the system. .
The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and is accessible once the rear seat cushion is removed and, the filter is located Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area,
driver side of fuel tank, mounted on frame in fuel
