A quick update. klhansen's idea about the shop vac gave me an idea. I had outfitted my compressed air tank with a "blow" valve to blow the fuel lines out after soaking them with carburetor cleaner. I inserted the blow valve into the fuel filler opening and used duct tape to wrap around and seal it so no air would escape. Wa la! After a few seconds of pressurizing the fuel tank, the fuel made it's way all the way to the glass inline fuel filter and the carburetor!
After a complete replacement of the ignition system - plugs, wires, points, condenser, rotor, distributor cap and coil, it started right up after 4-5 years of sitting. Now trying to figure out why it starts missing and eventually died after idling smoothly until it reached operating temperature. Ideas?
