Electric fuel pump/ fuel problem.

Postby sawyer24 » Thu Jun 06, 2013 7:47 pm

im new to this forum and i recently bought a 68 520.
anyways my trucks starts right up when you can get fuel to the carb but ive been having trouble getting it there.
i have an electric fuel pump on my truck, and it seems to work fine but for some reason i wont get gas to the carb,
can anyone tell me if i should keep the electric fuel pump or trash it and fix original one?

please forgive me im not much of a mechanic im really just learning with this truck.

I would check to see if the fuel pump is actually working. Im assuming that there is fuel in the tank. I would also check to see if the fuel filter is clear and there is fuel running through it. Once that is all checked I would then open up the carb to see that the bowl is full.
