|Linez35||when i take of the line it is pumping quite a bit of gas it seems to me, filter is not plugged, when i first start the engine as in it hasnt been started all day there is plenty of gas coming out of the nozzles into the primarys, then when i go to drive it it starts acting funny like it has no power what so ever and there is no gas coming out of the nozzles like its not getting enough gas into the fuel bowls to pump it out or something. i mean all the jets and everything in the carb look clean no sign of old gunked up gas or anything.|

First things first.
Tee off at the carburetor inlet and run a copper line back to the firewall, then up past the hood lip and onto the grillework (cowl) between the hood and the windshield. Mount a mechanical, liquid-filled fuel pressure gauge on the cowl temporarily and read the fuel pressure gauge as you drive. You'll need a steady 5 psi of pressure in order to fill the carb without overpowering the needle and seat, so monitor the pressure through the windshield as you drive. If it's too low, replace the pump or look for restrictions in the line(s) from the tank. If it's too high (over 6 psi), regulate the pressure down to 5 psi with a regulator or replace the pump with one that will limit pressure. Once you get the pressure under control, you can begin to test for other problems in the system.

fuel pump is good?
filter is not plugged?
in other words, the carb is getting a good supply of fuel?
