No gas in clear fuel filter but car runs great, why???
After getting my new 383 dialed in and running really good, I just cant figure out the fuel system on this car. I have a Holley 110 mechanical fuel pump running into -6 hose to a NAPA Gold clear filter right up to the carb. Sometimes the filter is full at idle but most of the time the filter only has about 1/4" of fuel in it and the fuel pressure guage reads zero but the car runs great. Sometimes it is full and reads about 7-8 at idle but for the most part always reads zero pressure. I have the stock lines going into the stock tank with an SS cap on the back. Should I be worried about this or since its running fine its obviously getting fuel. I will be taking it to the track sometimes and dont want any problems. This car should run low 12's to high 11's.
Any suggestions? I can get pics of setop if needed.
