Question about Chevrolet Chevy
Is there an easy way on a 1986 chevy K10 4x4 Elderblock Carborated 350 to find out of i have a cloged fuel line or a faulty fuel pump cause i dropped the tank due to a torn fuel hose and bad tank clamps. Its all connected back together and it wasnt pumping any fuel through the fuel hose to the carborator, so i changed the manual fuel pump and the battery to rule out the distributor or starter plus the battery was 8 yrs old. ive also tuned the carborators air/fuel mixture to 4 1/2 turns and it would run smooth for around 30 sec to a min but sputter and die, or if i pushed on the throttle it would die right away. I also have a timeing issue but i dont think it would effect the fuel line or pump issue.
If your timing is off,it will effect the fuel getting to carb.Your plugs may be fouled.

It seems there is some kind of air entering the carburator where its not required to do so or the idling soleniod switch is malfunctioning, thus not allowing the air to enter for the engine to idle .
Also recheck the vaccum pipes if they are correctly refitted per the schematics under the hood.More over remove the idling switch and blow some air to the hole probabley theres some kind of obstruction over there .

You are looking for the constant control relay module- ( CCRM ) see below. The pump will be located inside the fuel tank.Most of the time , its the pump and not the relay but, it wouldn't hurt to check the relay out. Teh relay is housed in the CCRM. Its located behind the engine coolant reservoir.

mcdevito75 here you should first start out with a complete tune up, if your car hasn't had one in at least 1 year then you work from there. Your problems could be many things and to replace 1 at a time will cost more than a tune up in the long run, much more.
