Who’s got two thumbs and may have ate paint as a child? This guy!
Got home tonight and took a look down each barrel of the front carb. Stroked the throttle and confirmed fuel squirt upstream of the butterflies.
Did the same for the rear. No fuel. Accelerator pump or check valve? Pulled the carb, tossed it on the bench and pulled the lower accelerator pump cover. Yep. Some idiot put the spring on the wrong side of the diaphragm. Swapped it to where it belongs, reinstalled the carb, turned the key to let the bowls fill, and cranked it for less than a second.
Fires up immediately. Idles smooth. Still some fine tuning to do, but what a relief! As per usual, the biggest problem with most cars was found between the steering wheel and the driver’s seat.
