I just bought an 85 4 runner and from what I can see I have fuel coming from the pump to the carb but it seems like something is plugged in the carb because when i pump the gas i'm not seeing or smelling any fuel going to the carb.

I was able to test to see if fuel was getting to the carb by disconnecting the fuel line and having it puimp into a cup.

Question is what do I do to check this carb out? Is there some kind of fouling in the carb and what's should my next step be?
:confused:

Has the truck been sitting for a while? If so, the gas tends to turn into rosin and clog up the jets. If not, check the floats to make sure they are working, if not, it is probably the jets. Basically, if you want to fix it, take it off, take it apart, go nuts with the carb cleaner, and clean out the jets with some thin wire. Put it all back together, and if you did it right, it should run.
