This problem has me stymied.
1978 GMC Sierra 350ci a lot of miles
I hit a large pothole and the truck quit running. Found that the carb kept flooding. Anyway, replaced the carb with a rebuild 'cause I was too lazy to fix the problem. The truck would not start. Fuel was not getting into the carb. Even tried taking the filter out and it still would not get fuel into the carb. Took the carb back and got another one. Well, same problem.
After attempting to start the truck, when I disconnect the fuel line, there is quite a bit of pressure there, so I am under the assumption that the fuel pump is operating properly. It is kinda' new too. When I pour fuel directly into the carb it starts up with no problem. I know I am missing something here, but have not come up with any ideas.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and I would be sure to show my appreciation with a large donation. (Large being large for me. Remember I drive a 1978 GMC as my primary vehicle.) Thank you.
have the same problem?
