    I had the same problem as mine sits for a few weeks sometimes between runs, so I just throw a capful of fuel down each carby and she fires right up straight away...

    I simply prime the float bowls through the vents with a plastic bottle and she fires right up. Works every time.

    Yep, use a primer bottle on both mine.
    Would take a little work to set-up a boost pump, push the switch a few seconds, and go. (Those airplane boost pumps service a one inch fuel hose!)

      My recently installed :lowdown: Carter M6903 mech fuel pump was my solution for long cranking periods to fill the 3x2 Holley carbs. I just completely disassembled all 3 carbs after the car sat for a few months. Put them all back together and within <15 sec vaROOM.
