My next step would be to check the fuel pump. I have an 82 P30 with the 454. Fuel pump is cheap but a pain to get to.

Thanks for the reply I just took the fuel line off the regulator can hear the pump running in the tank but nothing coming out of the regulator. Wonder if the regulator or maybe the pump in tank is bad?
Has anyone had the regulator go bad before Thanks again for the reply.

When the pump on mine went out the fuel line had disintegrated in the fuel tank. There is a short piece of fuel line between the tank and the pump inside the tank that you may need to check.

DD, I also did have that happen I just changed the hose on it. I can hear the pump running just no fuel coming out of the regulator not sure if the regulator or pump is bad.
Was going to take the MH to lake Havasu tomorrow to visit but now had to rent a room. Will get back on it when I get home on Friday I am thinking tank pump will update when I find out...
