I got a 81 Dodge ram 350 van with 318 ci, 4 bbl carb

81 Dodge van 318 ci , 4 bbl carb, problem:
after this vehicle stays parked for two days or more,
( it's used 3 yo 5 times a month because it's a gas hog and 250,000 miles )
gas does not squirt into the carburator,it only then starts by priming the carb, I'm a little depressed because it used to be reliable to start anytime.
is it the float bowl cracked or the fuel pump, the fue3l pump is about 2 years old, thanks,artie

Sounds like both a weak fuel pump and a bad accelerator pump in the carburetor.

Pitch both for new ones. Rebuild the carburetor.
