Hi 76 trans.
Thanks for the info.
Saw the car and it is a 400 yt code so an early engine. managed to scrape enough paint off to reveal the code on the front of the block. I didn't take the car as there was a disagreement on value. Still discussing with the seller.
Will be back with lots of questions when I buy one (this or something similar).

Hopefully the pressure side is not going to the tank rather than the carb.
List of current collection in my yard
70 Pontiac LeMans
73 Buick Centurion Convertible
73 Pontiac Gran Prix SJ
74 Chevrolet El Camino
76 Pontiac Trans Am
91 Lexus LS 400 parts car
93 Lexus LS 400

Neighbor just offered my a 63 Chrysler Imperial,for $500!
413 Wedge motor,runs,friends wife wants it out of the yard.
I originally tried my brake vacuum pump,and it was just sucking air,wouldnt show any vacuum on the gauge.
This car is a super clean california car,73 Gran Prix SJ,the undercarriage is like new,the metal fuel lines,running to the tank,have their original condition.
I cannot see any rubber hose attached to metal lines,seem hidden above the tank,Im guessing Ill remove the tank and see if lines got damaged somehow,before ordering the $60 sending unit.

You can try blowing pressurized air through the hard lines back to the fuel tank to see if it burbles in the tank, possibly loosening debris and unstopping the fuel lines. Just a thought.
Never seen this before,added 10 gallons of fuel,to a new project car.
Cannot get fuel to carb,replaced fuel pump,and tried 2 different hand held pumps,still no fuel moving.
Car has 200k in it,but its from california,you can eat off the undercarriage.
Common sense points to the sending unit assembly,but Ive never run into this condition.
Hopefully Ill find a build sheet,when I drop the tank.
Any other ideas?
Going to need more adjustment,cant get into gear,with engine running.
Unfortunately,master cylinder went out,need another week,before taking a test drive.
