assuming that all the lines are clean, including any metal lines, do your best to seal around an air compressor nozzle and add pressure to the tank while you crank her over.


Did you check the little mesh screen on the end of the pick up tube? These will rust away and the pieces will clog up the pick up tube so the gas can't get thru.
