Hello everybody,

Tried to start the old girl today but no joy, I must admit she has been standing for a while so was not surprised. I have narrowed it down to the fuel tap as she runs on my back up tap that I have fitted to the tank. I gave the fuel tap a good clean out and everything looks okay but I have been reading that you should create a vacum and turn on the tap if it flows then no problem. It doesn't flow but when I took it to bits the diaphragm looks fine so what could it be??

Many thanks

Alex

Which Alp?

I take it there is no fuel flowing when you suck on the vac pipe?

Please tell me you have plenty of fresh fuel in the tank....

Have you checked the fuel filter in the bottom of the tap?
I can't recall but do these taps have two smaller stubs - I'm pretty sure only one will open the tap (diaphragm) with vacuum, it's easy to mix them up.

Dunno if any of this helps!
