My 68 F-100 started to spit and sputter then just wouldn't run. The engine did crank but would not run. There is no fuel getting to the fuel filter from the gas line to the carb. Any ideas? The battery is fuelly charged.

Look at all the rubber hoses from the tank to the pump. Then check the pump for pressure to the carb

Hey Roy can I check the pump for pressure to the carb by disconnecting the fuel line from the fuel filter before it goes into the carb and just bump the engine to see if gas is getting out of the fuel pump to the fuel filter and then to the carb?

No, you must crank the motor and look for about 7 lbs.

Since I do not have a pressure gauge to test the fuel pump, what other ways can I test it?

You can rent one from a parts store. We need to be accurate before reccomending parts.
