Ok, here's the skinny....I'm not an advanced mechanic by any means, but I know how to turn wrenches...However, I know nearly nothing about carbs, so hear is my issue....
'85 Ramcharger, motor is a '75 360 just put in, runs like a gazelle, has a new Thermoquad on top of it...600 or 650 cfm if I remember right....Here is my problem... When the truck sits for a couple days, the carb has to be primed to start the truck. I pour a little gas down the front of the carb and she starts right up. It also starts fine when it's warmed up, just not when cold. Brand new fuel pump, and I can see the gas spray in the front chamber of the carb when I flick the accelerator, so I don't think it's an issue of the fuel draining down. I also disconnected the fuel line before I started it, and there was still gas in it, so it's getting fuel I believe, it just doesn't want to fire up. Any help from you guys is greatly appreciated...I'd love to get that old beast back on the road!
