You've got a situation here that invites experimentation. First, swap the
fuel pumps (they should be identical, unless one of your vehicles is 61 or
prior). If the problem doesn't move with the pump, swap the carbs. Even
though you said the carbs were both late model with power circuits, you
didn't say they were the same MODEL. If they are, you can leave them
swapped. If they aren't, they MIGHT not work quite as well on the "wrong"
vehicles, but just likely, they would. APPARENTLY, you mean to have
identical carburetors on both engines, so I'm assuming the engines of these
two are the same horsepower. Between not specifying: (a) years; (b) carb
models; and (c) engine models, you've left us lots to guess about.

my rampy likes lots of pumping to get started after a day or so of
inactivity. my van starts right up (after one pump to set the chokes) when
for long lengths of time...what gives? like the old rochester quadrajet
drain syndrome? the carbs are all late models with power circuits, same jet
sizes etc. someday i would like to know. meantime this winter i plan on
building 4 new carbs identicle as possible just to try. next it will be
pressure gauges on both also.i have seen some nice small ones at napa.
