surges unload will not rev up

took the 1997 205 lt1 out this mourning hard to start . it would start run 10 sec and quit ,then it would idle put would not rev up .we got it off the trailer and all it would do was around 1000 rpm and surge . my question is we could see the fuel going into the carb and when it surged we had less fuel what controls the fuel flow .dead headed the pump to fuel gauge 25psig not a lot of volume . revs up 2000 +no load on trailer .any information would help Thanks.

Yes fuel injected, I think it is starving for fuel, removed fuel line before filter and turned motor over not a lot of fuel flow or pressure .just kinda runs in jug no real pressure . it will build pressure if you plug the fuel line ,somebody said something about a check valve at the tank could it be restricted or tank pick up ? Thanks was looking for a way to prove it is the pump it is a little loud but not much difference from last year .
