Unhappy 86 nissan 720 pickup, Not getting fuel

I have a 86 nissan truck 720 te old body style. Its throttlebody carbretor and its getting gas up to the carburetor but the injectors seem not to be spraying. Anyone know what my trouble might be? I have changed the carburetor, electric fuel pump, Filter.

Run some injector type cleaner through. You might have a clogged injector.

Also, have you checked for spark? Remember, you need 3 things for engine start; Air, fuel and spark.

It's carborated, not fuel injected. Saying that, there is no power at ANY injector on a carb. Fuel is regulated by vacuum.

Yes, he got injectors, but not electrically controlled. I shouldnt call the injectors either, they are called jets.

+1, check the power to the injectors, look closely at the connector, most of the time , the terminals at the connector were pulled out a little bit.

Am I missing something? He has a carb and tb. He shouldn't have any electronic fuel injection, just vacuum controlled fuel jets which do not use power.

Look inside the Distributor, there's a crank angle sensor in it, make sure it's clean check power going in and coming out, it's also control your injectors pulse, better yet, try to retrieve a trouble code from ECU and go from there.
