Hello,
My 86 carbed wagon with 43K recently began having issues starting. Normally it fires up immediately. Now I can only get it to start by pouring gas in the carb. Once its running, it can be driven without issues and also idles perfectly. I let it sit overnight and now it will not start.
Can the mechanical fuel pump be weak enough that it doesn't provide enough fuel during cranking, but then once the engine is running, it is able to supply enough fuel to drive normally?
Or could it be a carb issue in that once the vehicle has been sitting for a while the residual fuel in the carb has drained out?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the great information! I appreciate the time that was taken to get into detail. Give me a week or so and I will post back with progress/updates. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
