|Torque454||If it has the juice to start the engine shouldnt the battery have enough power to run the pump and ignition system? It does sound fuel related. Did you check the fuel filter? Needle stuck in the seat? Floats low?|

mk ill do that and see what happens. i know this shouldnt matter at all, i dont think anyways, but my belt is not on. it should run without that right? if the carb adjusting does not fix the problem what should i do next?
thanks for all the input!

When you 'tighten' the 'nut', you are lowering the float level.

|lowandloud91||the back float level registers about 1/4 way on the window(there is 3 horizontal lines its at almost the first one) and the front does not even register unless u shake the truck and then it sloshes a little bit on the window. there is four little screws(2 on each side of each bowl) that i have turned 2 1/2 turns out. there is also two larger screws on top of each bowl with a nut. im not sure how to go about adjusting them but when i try to back the screw out some to i assume allow more fuel and tighten the nut, the nut will not tighten and fuel leaks out.|

|T-bucket23||I would check the float levels next. Also make sure all your vacuum ports are plugged or in use|

yes i have an electric fuel pump
|08-08-2009 11:40 AM|
|lowandloud91||well i found out i had an open vacuum port on the intake, i plugged that and a buddy did some carb adujstment and now it idles for about a min or so and then sputters off. also sometimes itll start rite up and sometimes, and sometimes it wont.|

|randyhemi||sounds like fuel issues. did you install an electric fuel pump when you did all this work?? from what you discribe you are running out of gas in the carb.|

|techinspector1||Check to see if you have a vented fuel tank cap.|
|08-07-2009 10:43 AM|
|lowandloud91||ok ill check that out and see what happens...but what if it checks out to be ok?..and what if it does not?|
|08-07-2009 07:41 AM|
I would start buy checking your float levels and put a fuel pressure gauge on it.

|lowandloud91||yes ive let it warm up, but it does have an elec choke|
|08-06-2009 09:08 PM|
|DoubleVision||Have you let it warm up then checked the idle? Cold engines with no choke aren`t known to idle|
|08-06-2009 06:14 PM|
|lowandloud91||the carb and intake gasket are brand new, and yes itll start back up.....i once started it and held it at about 3000 rpms and it stayed there and then it just shut off like i turned the key off, vacuum ports look good also|
