I am running it off the fuel left in my carbs.
I do have a remote tank and use that as well

either was it runs great off of either
just not my stock tank/ petcock with all tubing hooked up

what is a possible solution to my problem?

i'm pulling my petcock today
to poke around?

and can anyone send me a guide to properly pulling the carb rack?
I think i'm going to send them off anyway since im already ripped down

   I posted a test a few posts back. You need to do the test to answer the bolded, above. Steve

Don't know why but when I just read this thread (even though I sold my Connie last year - now WHO needs a life?) I thought of this quote from Engineer Scott of the USS Enterprise (in Star Trek III):  "Montgomery Scott: Aye, sir. The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."  https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Star_Trek_III:_The_Search_for_Spock

He said this in post 14:
"It ran great with a remote tank and great with the fuel left in the carbs, just not with the stock tank."

OOps. I missed that.  :-[

Sounds like you got it figured out Trav.
