1955 - 235 Fuel Pump

Is it common for a manual pump to bleed off after sitting a day. I have one that empties the fuel filter but have no external leakage and no signs of it going in the crankcase. It does pump it right back up when cranking. Just wondering?

It should hold the fuel from draining back.

If you have any rubber hose sections in your fuel supply line, pinch it closed with vice grips, after running the engine, and see if it starts right up after a day or two.

Ok, I'll give it a try, it does have a rubber hose in several places with a poly tank. I was wondering where it was going like being drawn back to tank by a siphon effect or what. Like most projects you get sometimes the PO may not have done things quite up to par.

I have had little pieces of crud get stuck in the valves and cause problems, it is apparent the valves are leaking due to something
