1973 Chevy Cheyenne, V8, 85,000 miles, 4x4, manual transmission, 1979 Quadrajet carb 4bbl, Edelbrock valve covers and manifold (the large cover under the carb, which I can't remember the name of).
My truck has been sitting for 18 months. At that time the truck started, but not without a few caps of gas poured into the carb. Once it started, it ran just fine. I have reassembled the carburetor that I took apart 18 months ago with a rebuild kit and put that back into the truck. I detached the BAT wire from the Delco-Remy distributor and the fuel line from the carb to see if any fuel was getting up that high, but there was none that I could see.
Why would it take the gas so long to get to the carb, even when it was running? And, once I get that fixed, is there a way to prime the lines in order to getting the truck running again?
Thank you, Jerry
