Fuel not getting to the carburetor
« on: September 28, 2020, 02:42:53 PM »
Hello, I have a problem starting my 1950 170S Cabriolet, we poured gas directly into the carburetor and the car turnes over until the pour is gone. My brother in law took the fuel pump off and I took it to a mechanic to see if it  could be rebuilt. The mechanic attached a four foot hose to the carburetor and the end into a can of gas. He pumped the fuel pump a few times and the pump proved to not be the problem. I am asking that if there is anyone out there that can recommend the next steps to locate my problem. I have to let you know that it's been about at least 6 months since I've started this vehicle.
