IanMc Posted May 25, 2019 Share Posted May 25, 2019 Morning all, Last weekend I tried to start the old girl - nothing, so just left it thinking it might need some more fuel as it was showing in the red on the gauge. Last night I picked up 3 gallons of fuel and this morning I have put about half of that it in. Now the gauge is showing between red and 1/4 of a tank - still no start. Upon investigation I find that no fuel is reaching my in-line filter which is between the inner wing and the fuel pump in the engine bay. Following that I poured a bit of fuel directly into the carb and it ran well for a fuel seconds before stopping. My thinking was that the engine cycle might pull and air trapped in the ful lines through and get things back to normal. But no, even after a few times of adding fuel directly into the carb the in-line filter is still bone dry... After crawling underneath the car I can see no signs of any leaks along the length of the fuel lines, so I'm a bit stumped really. I did think about raising the back of the car in an attempt to force the fuel down to the front, but that should of course happen naturally with the pressure above the fuel in the tank - I think anyway... Any suggestions please? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
