Had an issue starting today. Saw no fuel getting into my carb. No spray when I actuated the pump. I have a pressure gauge inline and it showed pressure. I scratched my head and nothing. I rmoved what I could of the fuel line up to the carb. The filter when i shaked it sounded like one big chunk inside hitting back and forth. I think its the problem. I have to find a post on here talking about which ones are decent. I dont remember buying this one from the dollar store.

Also check the brass fuel Filters in the carburator. On most Holley carburetors, the filters are located in a cavity inside the float bowls just behind the fuel inlet fittings where the fuel lines attach to the float bowls.
I Had a totally clogged Filter in the secondary once.
Very good advice on the Holley bronze filters.
that’s the first thing to check and remove on any Holley carburetor, but make sure you definitely have a quality fuel filter installed prior to the carburetor
Oh yeah totally agree. Mines an edlebrock but basically built similar. I did check that screen and it was clean. Larry totally right. A quality fuel filter will stop alot of issues. Too bad almost all the glass ones are not very trustworthy. Would love to be able to see the filter everytime I opened the trunk.
