    There could be a bad fuel pump or cracks in the fuel hoses. One location for a cracked fuel line is the hose right out of the tank. After checking all the fuel lines, check for fuel line pressure.

    As mentioned check fuel line pressure. Since its an '83 its probably best to inspect/replace any rubber lines and fuel filter too.
