One thing you may want to try is disconnecting the fuel line at a convenient spot and blow air back into the tank.

With a 76 model, there could be some interior tank rust or other crud that is partially plugging the fuel pick-up tube in the tank.

If you have enough fuel in your tank? It sounds like a split in your rubber hose is causing air to be sucked in the line. Common problem with the hose on the top of the tank.

could be it had 8 gallons in there had enough gas lol but all i did was take off the rubber hose from the hard line back by the gas tank and put on my own and put it in a boat gas tank and it worked so either the pickup on the tank was clogged or it had a split in the line?

I would opt for a clog in the line.

A split in the line would have spilled fuel.

Working on that issue now with my YJ... Replacing rotten fuel lines.

I've had split in old rubber lines that didn't leak but did suck air when the pump was running full bore. Apparently their is a higher vacuum on the lines from the pump, than pressure in the lines from the hydrostatic head in the tank. No gas leaks, but the lines suck air...
