no fuel after weber installed

I just installed my brand new weber 32/36 today and hooked everything up (I believe correctly) but I have not yet nuttered it. I DO plan on nuttering it tomorrow. I tried to start it after swapping the carbs, and it did not start, this did not concern me very much because I have a lot of vac line stripping and nuttering to do before the weber will perform correctly... I know this. What concerned me was the carb wasn't receiving fuel AT ALL, I will be installing a fuel regulator before I start driving in the spring but that shouldn't keep the carb dry when trying to start should it?

I seriously don't understand this at all. There was no sign of any fuel delivery problem before I swapped carbs. And believe me I turned it over a lot trying to start it, I def gave it enough time. What's the deal? What would keep even a drop of fuel from getting to the carb?

You should not need a FPR, just keep the return style fuel filter. You will not over pressure with it and it will keep a variable out of the system.
As far as no fuel goes, are you sure you have the supply and not the fuel return hooked up to the carb?
Will it fire if you give it a little squirt of gas down the throat of the carb?

Fixed. I took your advice and put a bit of fuel down the throat, it was all it needed! It ran like Sh** but I expected that until I finish the nutter. Thanks

well, I was gonna mention there may be no fuel in the lines(at least close to the carb) from doing the swap. When I was doing my swap, I kept a can of starter fluid close by. Definitely helpful. Glad you got it figured out though.
