I have to spray starter fluid in carb when engine sits a few
hours. The car starts fine if it has run within a couple of hours. I installed a new fuel pump. Any ideas on what I should
look for? Thanx ::

Sounds like the fuel is running out of the fuel bowl and into the intake. After you shut the engine off, pull the air cleaner off and see if you can see fuel running into the engine.

...or your accelerator pump is toast. Work the throttle a couple times to see if it squirts fuel into the venturis....
