Have a create 350HO deluxe. Came with the 650 carb**** mounted to the motor. Total run time at various rpm was 10 hours. Car has not been off the stands-----for ever.

the last time I ran the motor was maybe 6-7 months ago. (pre transmission problem).

Quick start up, responsive throttle to various rpm. Ran good, no problems. Normal shut down.

Problem: Engine turns over however the Carb is not getting any fuel into the bowl. Pump new (at that time) all new gas lines,(stainless) two inline filters + the Carb filter. Gas tank was was dipped and coated many years ago but did not see fuel before 2019.

CT friend came over and started to go through the system. gas tank to carb and everything between them. All are working however he found that the fuel stops at the carb.

thanks in advance

this is how far we got. Before I send the carb to a shop, we hoped someone has some ideas.
**** carb part number is 80457-2 2350
