Fuel pump relay or fuse?



Yes? they are good or was that the problem?

Not the problm that's not the problem and I when I when I put gas through the carburetor it starts right up and then it dies like in five or six seconds and it seems like there is no gas going from the gas tank to the motor


Did you test the spider fuel regulator and injector system on this? These are very common issues on these chevy/gmc engines.
