Fuel pump siphon?
I recently installed an airtex 9 psi fuel pump in front of my mechanical. When the carb is dry, 10-15 seconds will enable a quick start. I have noticed though that the car will idle for a few minutes, then die. When I check the bowl it is near empty.
However, If I keep the idle high for a couple of minutes (not really what I want to do), then it stays full. Here is a diagram of my setup. Any thoughts on what is wrong?
