The design of the union on the carbs is such that the carb first in the supply line will hog fuel from the 2nd carb when delivery is limited. 

First do a delivery volume check from the union at the 2nd carb. Then compare that to the same check to the first carb. 

I  suspect that you will find that total supply is insufficient.

If there were debris in the tank it would clog up the intake line and the pump would be working overtime to try to get fuel to the carbs---this isn't happening.  Plenty of fuel getting to the rear carb----just the front one isn't getting its' supply.

BTW---the front one has one of those composite type floats in  it.  Not sure if it has any effect??
