“Did you observe squirt after it dies”, yes a fine mist. From what I’ve read the Stromberg has a circuit that comes into play as the engine starts to keep the gas flowing. May have gotten accidentally plugged during the rebuild. BTW the engine ran, although with a bit of hesitation, and the vehicle had several miles on it prior to the carb being removed for rebuild. I will rig a temporary tank tomorrow and complete Jerry’s other pump tests. Thanks for the helpful suggestions.

thumbs_up A pro rebuilder should be able to rebuild that carb easily. But Jerry knows that is wishful thinking. I just now see he said to rig a tank already. Sorry about the repeat but I feel good in that crowd.

Didn’t have time today to complete the testing. I pulled the spark plugs and all 6 were fuel fouled. I rounded up an old plastic lawnmower tank to rig up. I’ll pick up the new plugs and some fuel hose at the flaps tomorrow. Grandkids the rest of the day.

Just to catch everyone up. Fuel pump tested fine. Engine would not stay running even with an auxiliary tank. Carburetor was okay. Started chasing the wiring and found a broken ignition switch wire inside of a heat shrink sleeve. Sometimes it would make circuit and sometimes it wouldn’t. That bugger was a real treat to find. All is well and the suggestions were a big help.
