From the begining: no start condition after 2 weeks of non use... Gas gauge registered 1/2 tank, no fuel out the fuel line at the carb thru a tube into a container. The filter was hard to blow thru so I removed it. I went for a new pump and filter, came back and the container now had 3/4 pint of gas in it!?? I used starter fluid to run engine for a few seconds (still with old fuel pump) and gas flowed into the container like a fire hose. I put the new filter in and reconnected the fuel line to the carb. Still won't run except with spurts of starter fluid. Added 5 gal fresh gas. Now gauge reads 3/4 full. Installed the new pump, still won't run at idle or any position of accelerator. When I removed all screws on the carb perimeter and loosened the two under the choke, fuel came flowing out and the top popped up about 3/16 above the base. Normally, the choke is open about a 1/4". (Temperature was about 70*.) Next step is to get the top off and see why a no start condition occurs even with fuel in the bowl..
BTW, It's not my '79 Buick /305. It belongs to an 87 yo friend.
