If the line is clogged. replace it. Start the
engine and see if it stays running. If it

fuel system fault preventing fuel from
reaching this point.
If the cold advance solenoid is getting power,
the only possibilities that would keep the engine

Compression Unbalance test (STEIICE-R
Test 14) to check this.
