1990 4.2 doesnt always start

Hi, I have read through some posts but dont see the exact problem I'm having:
I've rebuilt the stock carb and replaced the fuel pump but I'm not getting gas into the carb. The problem is worse in the morning (after it sits) and after it gets hot, if I shut it off and try to start. When running it seems to run fine, idles well and has good power. What should I try next? Thanks! I'm new here, not a great mechanic, but have a friend who's helpin!
