So, I've been chasing many problems on this old bus of mine. It's a 77 Bay Window that I can't seem to get back on the road.

The problem right now is.....The engine turns over strong, but will not fire up unless I pump the gas for 3-4 seconds. Only then does it sputter to life, and if I let off the gas and let the RPMs down it dies.

I was told it could be a vacuum leak, but I can't seem to find it. What else could it be?
