OK, if he has fuel in the oil, he must have the line from the bottle to the fuel pump to the carb, not from the carb to the bottle alone, right? Right?

 
 I hope anyway.

Mike, pumps for those are easy to get at the local parts store.  But try to stay away from Autozone.

As i said i said it wrong in the video i ment to say bypassed the fuel tank the lines are hooked up from bottle to pump filter then carb.   Also does anyone know a carb that would interchange with an electric choke?

If you have to, remove the top of the carb and see if it is full of gas, and if it is overflowing, adjust the float, and if you really have to, a gravity feed hose from a bottle and hang it on the hood latch overhead so the gas is above the carb, just to make sure it isn't the ignition.
 
As far as electric choke, why would you want to do that at this point? That is one beautiful carb sitting there, you just have to do some tweaking before cleaning everything else up.

 UPDATE:   Car is running like a kitten! i put the new spark plugs (really nasdty) Put new points in/new conectors to the coil/resistor. Pulled the carb off and  reset float and found out my aux pump in the carb wasnt set right. Changed the oil/filter new fuel filter and she's running really good. Just need to adj the idle and fine tune carb a little. Also did a compression test and got around 140-150 :D

Good deal on everything, and great job. Now spend some time and straighten some of those wiring rat's nests all over the place, for safety if nothing else.

That's the stuff they use in automotive.  Far cheaper then trying to buy it in the auto parts store.  I buy the 100 foot rolls.  They have all kinds of connectors in there too.  I think they have the spade connectors you need to rebuild the plugs too.

When you get to the point of wrapping the wires with tape, go down to an electronics store and get the cloth tape by 3M. If feels sticky, but it goes away real fast after it is taped, it does wear out after more than a decade, but it doesn't get affected by oil or unfrays the way the plastic tape does. Hate that stuff.
