|potvinguy||The tank has a vent, I assume?|

Is this a roller cam motor, I hope?
If not, you likely have bigger problems by now.

You completely replaced everything in the fuel system. It takes time for the pump to suck fuel from the tank and fill the float bowl in the carb. The easy thing to do is to fill the carb through the bowl vents. I use a turkey baster or similar tool.

Are you using a mechanical pump on the side of the block and also when you installed a new sending unit did it have an electric fuel pump on the sending unit? In my experience you can't run a mechanical fuel pump and have it pull fuel through an electric fuel pump on the fuel tank and it not be hooked up and if you were to have it hooked up depending on the fuel pressure you would have to have a regulator to keep the pressure correct.
On all my s10 v8 swaps I had to take out the in tank pump so my mechanical pump would be able to pull fuel. The first time I did this many years ago I had everything hooked up and turned and turned over and did not get any fuel. I had to have the tank dropped and the electric fuel pump removed then problem solved. Just something to check.

|39 master||Engine mounted fuel pump...was the pushrod put back in? Was the pushrod holding bolt loosened?|

|poncho62||What I would do is, take the connection from the tank at the input of the pump off. Take a hose the right size and put it from there into a 1 gallon gas can with some gas in it. Crank it over. If it draws gas from there, the problem is from the pump back. If not, the pump is likely no good. It is an engine mounted pump, right?|

350 chevy 4bbl 1984 K5 blazer. everything is new, just replaced and installed today. there is gas in the tank. anything need to be primed?

I would suspect the pump is bad....or you have a leak and its just sucking air.
What car, engine etc?

No gasoline at the carb
I have replaced fuel tank, sending unit, fuel line, return fuel line, all new rubber fuel lines, fuel pump, fuel filter and new carb. I have cranked the motor for over 1 minute and still no gas. do I need to keep turning the motor over or something else?
