Its the carburetor! if there's fuel in it! If not check the pump.. But after 30 plus years that Carb Q-Jet needs a rebuild or a re-manufactured replacement.

Enough for it to squirt a stream when you open the throttle fully use a flash light make sure the accelerator pump is functional. Next make sure its not "pouring excess fuel" from a stuck float shouldn't drip or continue to let fuel flow. Regards
