it is a rochester carb? when you rebuilt it, did you check the inlet filter? right behind where the fuel line goes into the carb is a paper filter, although some have a brass filter as well. when they get very dirty, old, or water in them, they will collapse and cause the same problem. just need a big cresent wrench or a 1" wrench to take off that big fitting. i had one fail on me during a cross country road trip.....never knew about it before then, but two fuel pumps and several hours lost, some guy pulled over and told me about it..........took it out, and it was black and all mashed up........took it out, truck started right up and ran great after that.................
