Default Re: Starving For Fuel ?

Thanks for the advice 2door.You were partly correct,there was indeed a fleck of dirt blocking the seat about 50%.But after a test ride it was still operating with almost no fuel visible in the line.
Not knowing what else to try, I put a new filter of a different style on and its working perfect.
The old filter was not plugged but was the kind with a simple screen,the new one is the type with the paper cartridge inside.
It doesnt make much sense to me but it seemed like the old filter made the fuel froth as the engine vibrated,restricting flow.
Just a theory but at least I am motoring again.
Thanks again for the advice,this site is a gold mine of info!
