Truck has been sitting for about 6 months, after this length of time I usually have to pump the pedal about 20-25 times before fuel gets to the carb. This time no fuel is getting to the carb. So truck will not start. What is the best way to get fuel to the carb?
Do you

If its actually a Carb-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump and the fuel filter start here

I don't have a pressure gauge for a pressure check, is there another way to check the pump? I thought about the filter but can't find its location.

Fuel filter: If its not inline between the carb and fuel pump -Disconnect the fuel inlet on the carb and check there
