Ivan :

Hello and good evening. I'd like you to try something. Disconnect the line from the fuel tank and connect a long hose to the fuel pump in its place. Then insert that hose into a gas can full of fuel. See if you can get it running on that and let me know what happens.

if i shoot strter fluid in carb it stays running. Im loosing the signal from ignition to fuel pump. I have also put in a new relay switch

Ivan :

Ok, I didn't realize this had a electric fuel pump with a carb, I assumed it was mechanical. I'm going to look at some diagrams and get back to you on what to test

Customer:

Ok, this vehicle has very limited info so I'm going to hang in as long as I can. Can you make sure you have power on both sides of the fuses 23 and 24. They should both be 20amp fuses. Let me know
