Engine Performance problem
1979 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 176000 miles
My truck won't start after it sits a few days. It starts very easily any other time. Starter fluid fires it up immediately, but usually takes several repeated squirts before it finds enough gas to keep running. Pouring gas in the carb may help, but it isn't an instant cure.
This has been a problem for years now. I've replaced the mechanical fuel pump and filter. Everything is original on the truck, no rebuilds. The pollution control equipment/hoses are removed or plugged. It has two gas tanks but I only use one and keep it low because it will leak if filled to the top.
have the same problem?
