Any time I "wake up" an old carb'd car after a rest I fill the carb bowl with fuel.

Most carbs have a vent that can be used to fill the float bowl.

I have an old plastic dish soap bottle with I call my primer bottle.

Saves wear and tear on the starter etc. as the Engine should fire right up.

Sometimes, old fuel pumps need a few more RPM that the starter provides to respond.

Thanks

Please keep in mind I was referring to filling the carb bowl.

Not squirting it down the carb throat as this can be dangerous.

Thanks
Randy
