'Ole Henry, '50 8N, has a perpexing problem. He just has trouble starting after sitting a few days. First try will sputter and die. After that, it just won't start. It seems to me that gas is not getting drawn-up to the cylinders. Here' some "hints" that may help solve the puzzle:
Even after turning over for quite a while, the plugs are dry.
Plenty of spark.
Carb rebuilt about 20 hours ago. Clean inside.
Float is good. Pull off the air inlet tube, and about a thimble of gas runs out.
Condfident the jets are set properly
Always starts with starter fluid
No manifold leaks.
Winter or summer, putting a heat gun on the carb for a few minutes sometimes helps.
Choke plate is good.
No air obstructions.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
