Post a picture of the hose setup so we can see what's going on. I can't imaging that anything is wrong with how it's routed if it ever worked before, and that primer solenoid looks like it's piped right into the tee.

Will do tomorrow.

I think I figured out my problem to fuel pressure. Need to call gas company and see if I can squeeze another 1.5 in of water Column out of my regulator

That setup looks totally normal to me. I don't see anything altered or anything like that. It could be that the fuel regulator is giving you some trouble. There are 5 small holes on the diaphragm cover. If you take a small allen wrench and GENTLY push in while the unit is cranking, does it fire up? Basically what you're doing it adding fuel to the mix.

So I found what you were talking about and if I do push in, it almost wants to start. Does that tell you I have a fuel pressure problem?

When it is not trying to start the diaphragm is pretty loose. And only after a few seconds of cranking do you feel it push back on the Allen wrench and I need to apply some force.
