Remove the rubber fuel line from the fuel tank where it connects to the steel fuel line.

The fuel should come out in a steady stream about 1/4 inch in diameter. If it doesn't, the strainer in the tank is plugged, probably by fungus. You then have to remove the strainer and clean it.

If the strainer has a brown silicone rubber like substance on it, you have fungus in your fuel system. Only a fungicide like Biobor will kill the fungus. You can clean the strainer with compressed air but if you don't kill the fungus, it will plug the strainer and filters again.
