Re: Starting issues
Modern gas evaporates rather quickly (the bowl will 'dry out' after a few days). The carb may be simply 'out of gas'. There may be nothing 'wrong'.
If the bowl is empty, the car needs to crank (to 'run' the mechanical fuel pump) to replace the 'lost' gas before it will start. Instead of pumping the gas pedal trying to start it, recommend one 'pump' to set the choke, repeat short (3 sec or so) bursts from the starter until it starts (3-6 bursts should suffice); do not touch the gas pedal. Let the system do its job. That process starts my car every time after it has sat for a few (4-5) days.
The first time I ran out of gas (1968?), I had to turn over the engine several times (to cycle the fuel pump) to pump the added gas from the tank to carb. The second time I ran out of gas (likely also in 1968?), I 'saved' a couple of ounces of gas to put directly into the carb; started right up. I rewarded myself with a beer.
If the car is 'doing' it everyday. It's not evaporation. But, as others have said, still may be related to the 'empty bowl'.
