Cold start issue.

Fuel systems are not my forte so any advice is appreciated.

My 76 seems to run great after 12 years sitting in an underground garage. The only issue I seem to be having is when the car sits overnight. It wont start unless I fill the carb bowl with fuel. There is some in there when I open it up but she doesn't seem to be firing. The carb is a Weber 32/36 with the electric choke BTW.

My diagnosis so far is:

Fuel pump?

Tiny leak in fuel line?

Any other ideas.
