We removed and cleaned out the fuel tank, but there is no fuel flowing thru the lines why?
Cleaned out the fuel tank, replaced all rubber fuel lines and replaced the fuel pump, we the
added 2 gals. of fuel but cannot get any fuel to flow thru the lines up to the carb. What
should we next? Any help is appreciated.
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.
Is any gas leaving the fuel pump? Can you syphon any of the gas up to the fuel pump? If yes. Try taking a can of gas and the inlet fuel line, right next to the fuel pump. Now place that line into the can of gas, turn it over. Try another pump if still no gas. I had this problem and just moved to an electronic fuel pump.
