Hard Starting (Autolite 1100)

My carburetor won’t start without priming

When starting your car an extra squirt of gas is necessary from the accelerator pump circuit.

After running the vehicle turn it off and look down the carburetor. Is gas dribbling out of the main discharge?

If so, then gas is being siphoned by the engine. That would be the main discharge leaking.
