Not getting fuel to engine 1977 450 SLC 4.5 V8
First off- Hi All - this is my FIRST POST! I am brand new and hope I am posting this in the right place. I just purchased a 1977 450 SLC 4.5 V8 that has been in storage for 10 years. I can't seem to get fuel to the fuel distributor! I have drained old fuel (it was a full tank) cleaned the tank screen, replaced the fuel pump. I did blow out the fuel supply line from the engine back to the tank. What I assume is the fuel return line was blocked. It connected to the fuel distributor on driver side closer to windshield. No sure it the line should be open or blocked.
Bottom line - the pump runs and pressures up to the accumulator but it doesn't make it to the engine.
