    managed to finally get her going.
    bought a aeroflow blue electric fuel pump (copy of the holley blue) and she seems to be working well so far.
    shes just in need of a good tune now.

    thanks for the help and tips.

    You might have just bandaided the real issue. It's possible there's too much fuel pressure now or the carby might need a rebuild anyway.
    Get a rebuild kit off ebay and follow some of my earlier threads about the RB30 carby rebuild or
    get the carby professionally rebuilt. You can also get a brand new carby for around $400 from ebay.
    Replace the fuel filter if you haven't done that already. Get a fuel pressure/vacuum tester and test the fuel pressure.
    Also test the fuel return switch/valve as well. Patrol manual(Haynes) can guide you how to do the fuel pressure/fuel return switch, etc tests. Download the manual from this forum.

    Carby's are fairly simple to overhaul - as long as you take your time and note where bits come from so they go back in the right place.
    Possible problems for your description - check in this order
    Fuel filter blocked/dirty
    Tank strainer dirty
    Sometimes there is a small strainer in the "banjo" where the fuel pipe connects to the carby (above the needle and seat for the float)
    Main jet in the carby blocked (most likely the problem) but most work to check.

    Regulated compressed air is almost essential for cleaning out a carby, but an aerosol tin of carby cleaner or crc will do.
    "Can't" is a dirty 4 letter word.
    Best way to deal with a "Can't" is to chop off the "t" and brew it in boiled water for a few minutes.
    Sip on the "t", and consider what you've got left to work with
