The vacuum chamber is not affected by drainage of the bowl . As long as there's vacuum , either via the motor running or your mouth , fuel will flow . The valve is spring loaded and presses closed when no vacuum is present .

Your slow turn over may be caused by a dirty starter motor .

Pull it . Tear it apart and clean the internals . Lightly lube the bearings / sleeves for the armature and put it back together .
