Trying to start 1953 Super for the first time. in Buick - Post War - Technical Posted January 10, 2012 Thanks Brad for the fuel filter tip. There's an old glass bowl in line just before the carb, similar to the one from a Chevy like you suggested. It still isn't getting any fuel. Best go back and check that pump....How about the fuel feed line, I forget if you mentioned if it is new or not....maybe a blockage or even a pin hole in the suction line/fittings?Maybe try bypassing the tank altogether and run the suction into a portable can of gas.
