    Scooter, you say the pump is pumping but is it pumping at full pressure? I once had a pump that seemed to be pumping, but the spring under the arm had broken in two and it wouldn't keep up.

    Pour some gas into the vent tube of the carb. eng should start. .I am in the middle of replacing a fuel tank on a truck that sat for 4 yrs. when i pulled the tank and could get the feed line out it would not let fuel run thru. you could pressure it and it would pass. i cleaned the fuel line and am replacing the tank in the am.

    the small things that cause the biggest problems are often missed by even the best..... i've done it plenty of times at work, you just start instantly thinking for the worst.... specially when the car is a piece of junk though, like a mitsubishi or any chrysler product of the newer junkier era
    just because your car is faster, doesn't mean i cant outdrive you... give me a curvy mountain road and i'll beat you any day
