Hi guys. I got a problem that i'm trying to resolve and anything would help. Thanks in advance for whatever you can contribute.
I have a 72 Carina with a stock 2TC motor. The back story: Driving one day and the car would keep on sputtering. I couldn't keep the throttle on because it would start to break up. I had a 45DCOE webber hanging around anyways so I decided to install it thinking it was the 32/36 that was bad. After install, the motor would start up but after 10 to 15 min i noticed the fuel pressure would start dropping (installed an FP gauge) until it hit zero then would just die!
I posted here before and was told that it might be my gas tank and it might need a cleaning and re-sealing. about $300 dollars and a couple of weeks later, got the tank back and installed it back but after all the connection was back up, now the car wont start!
I also installed some new suspension on the car and have not bled the clutch cyclinder and brakes yet. Would that have anything to do with my current situation? So to make it easier, I made my question list below. Once again, whatever help you can give is very much appreciated!
1) Could I have connected the hard lines wrong in the tank? If so, why would my fuel pressure gauge be reading 3-3.5 psi? (webers dont need a fuel return line.)
2) Could they have sealed the fuel lines when they re-lined the fuel tank? I called the guy and he said that it souldnt have went in that far because of the consistancy of the liner....i beg to differ.
3) Could it be that the clutch master/ brake master is drained since I changed all the brake/suspension and havent bled them yet?
4) Any suggestions?

new setup with the weber 45 DCOE ( FYI the FPR is removed)
