If you want you can try this...
1. Unhook the vent line under the car (the short rubber hose) and try to blow it out with some compressed air. This will prove if it's plugged.
2. Unhook the rubber fuel line from the pump, then jack up the back of the car. If fuel comes out due to gravity, the line is clear.
3. Unhook the fuel line from the carb (at the carb) and have someone hold the end of it into a small container while you crank the engine over. You can also do this yourself and turn the engine over by hand but it's harder to do it this way.
Hey brother...I'm not a licensed mechanic but I do all of my work myself. If this was my problem, I would try these ideas. All they will cost you is some time and sweat...droping the tank would be my last resort.
TIME IS SPEED... SPEED IS TIME...
