cant get gas from tank to go through lines shut of is on plenty of gas in blew air through top of tank only air comes out the gas line no gas. blew air up through gas line to tank air comes out of tank no air bubbles even. i duno what it could be all answers will be appreciated. when stored last year it stopped running like it ran outa gas.
The pick-up lines in both my machines disintegrated. The ethanol in our fuel is the likely culprit. The pick-up point on my '03 is close to the bottom of the tank. It acted like it ran out of gas with a 1/4 tank. The point on my '02 is halfway up the tank, that one is the one that got me looking inside the tank, and sure enough..... Needless to say, I am now religious about using non-oxygenated fuel.
I'm betting it's the pickup line, if you fill the tank full enough to cover the outlet to the fuel pump with fuel and pressurize the tank with air, you should get gas instead of air.
When I did my 650, the clamps used were crimped on and not reusable. A screw clamp won't fit through the hole in the tank. I found some fuel line at a chainsaw repair shop that gripped well enough that I could not pull it off once I put it on. If you don't have the crimp style clamps and plyers, that may be an option. If you use regular fuel line with no clamp, the pickup line and filter will fall off and you will be fishing in the tank to recover the filter. Trust me on that
