Oh. I wonder if I found the main problem. The float pin seems to stick sometimes. The result is no fuel can get into the carb bowl. I wonder if this was a main offender along with lots if other clogging.
The pin is visible at the top of the picture that is third from last above, and also at the bottom of the picture above that.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
