Why would a 1985 V6 Camaro carb run dry during acceleration even after you changed the fuel filter and made sure the fuel pump was working properly?

It might be that the pickup screen inside the tank is clogged with rust, or other debris. If your fuel appears a little bit rusty, the filter in the tank (nylon sock) on the pick up tube will clog under load. You could also be picking up water which has particles big enough to clog fine mesh filters. Also use a regular filter(IE: Fram), High performance filters can be to fine to allow good flow if there is any trash in your system. Good Luck, Gary (gfmacgregor@hotmail.com)

I think they changed them just a bit, somewhere in there, but, the cars are the same width, so yes.
