I recently purchased a 1930 studebaker 8 cylinder commander.I found that the carbourator leaked so took It apart.Found It had been broken (a triangular piece) out of the back.Cleaned and patched it,the leak slowed down car ran better.Now after a couple of days,the car will not start,I found small chunks in gas bowl.
Took an air gun and blew Into gas line behind the gas bowl and got fumes and air out of tank.Car still will not start and cannot get gas into gas bowl.Every time i did try to start it I still got small dry chunks in bowl-no gas going through.I need a stromberg u 2 carbourator now do I need a fuel pump?
I'll take any advice I can get
Thankyou

Small chunks of what? Tiny, hard, pieces of black rubber by any chance?
