Re: Edelbrock performer goes dry?
Mechanical or electric fuel pump? If mechanical, I believe they are supposed to have an anti-drain-back valve in them. If the fuel is draining back through the line, then the problem may be the pump.
If you have electric pump, the only thing I can think of would be, depending on type of carburetor, possibly leaking well plugs inside the carb, bad gasket or sealing surface within the carb.. Are there any signs that raw gas is leaking into the engine?
