OK, so I tapped on the fuel pump housing, hopped in the car, turned the key and the pump whirrs to life. Turn it over and she coughs, sputters and fires up!! Thank-you MilesFox. Fuel pump now working.
Ran it for several minutes but it doesn't hold at the correct idle speed, it idles way down to just a two or three hundred RPM's. Ran it till she warmed up, let it idle way down and after several minutes it dies. Starts, runs dies, starts runs dies until no start. Tried the next day and again no start and no inidication of firing like before.
Previously, when I added a gallon of fresh gas, the fuel gauge read empty. Now the gas gauge inducates 1/4 tank so I figure I still have bad gas. Pull the fuel line from the fuel pump to drain the gas tank and no gas comes out. Maybe that's the problem. Blow some air through the fuel line back into the tank to clear whatever is blocking and it now drains. Empty the tank, 5-gallons, add a couple gallons of fresh gas and again no start.
Plan to change the fuel filters, and check the spark plugs next as I think that since it did run, the failure to start is still a fuel issue. Once I get it starting reliably again I'll address the low idle and any other issues that come up. My plan is to eventually pull the engine and re-seal all the oil leaks but I want to first get it running right. Any other ideas? Thanks for all the help.
