more carb/fuel help

Dodge B150van 318, auto. Rebuilt the carb. replaced the fuel pum and a few lines yesterday. The damn thing just won't start after sitting more than a few hours, seems like the fuel in the bowl of the carb just goes away. Anyone have any thoughts?

What does a volume check of the fuel pump reveal?

Check my signature file for some ideas.

Joe, I'm in Mexico. I went to 4 diffrent dealerships to have the fuel pump tested and not one single on of them had a fuel pressure gauge. They think I'm the man in the moon. If I hold the choke plate open I can see gas dribbling into the carb after it's been started with gas earlier. By the way it's a holley 2280

Hit an Autozone store (I'm sure they have them in Mexico) and rent a fuel pressure gauge.

Follow your directions there and tell us what it tells you.

Did you rebuild the carburetor? Perhaps leave something out?

Joe there are no auto zones in Mexico or certainly none on their web site. I just found a guy in Brooklyn who will mail me a carb. Don't care about the cost. Just want to be able to start in the morning. Shoud be here Friday. I'll install it and go from there. Thanks

Wow ! That's going to be pricey.

Check your fuel pump volume by seeing how much volume it can fill a jar with.

Let us know what you find. Old Chryslers were a PITA with carburetion and they never got it right.
