I have a 1961 Ford Galaxie Victoria (box top) 2 Dr. Hardtop. When I bought it I was told it had a 1969 Mustang 302 c.i. engine and C4 trans. It sat with the fuel pump inlet hose disconnected for some time and I want to make sure the pump works. I put the inlet hose in a container of gas and the outlet hose in a empty container and cranked the engine for some time but nothing came out. I did this several times. I tried this with both the original pump and a Holly pump and I put white grease on the pump arm and it shows the cam is on the arm.

Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks, Gene

You have to prime it by manually fill the carb bowls with fuel and starting the car.
