Remove the fuel line at the carb, attach to fuel pressure guage and turn the ignition to the "on" position. For the purpose of confirming the function of the elec fuel pump this can be done without a pressure guage but must be done very carefully.
Remove the fuel line at the carb, place a plastic bottle or jar over the end of the line and have someone turn the ignition on to see if fuel is actually being delivered to the carb. Caution: the fuel pump may be working! This will pump raw gas on to the top of your engine if not done carefully and therefore is not recommended.
If no fuel is present, recheck the electrical supply to the pump and confirm that the pump is actually running.
