fuel delivery problem
Posted 11 September 2006 - 09:20 AM
wondering if you can help?
Went to try and start my car on the weekend after not starting it for a month or so and it refused to start. (Stock 240Z twin SU's, mechanical fuel pump)
It was turning over so I pulled a fuel line off the Carby and there was no fuel coming through.
I pulled the mechanical fuel pump off (which appears to be quite new) and hand pumped it and it siphoned fuel out of a container and shot it 20 feet across the yard so this appears to be fine. I swapped over the fuel filter but to no avail.
I thought there might have been a blockage in the fuel line so I blew compressed air back down into the tank (with the fuel cap off)
The refitted fuel filter is not filling with fuel after a lot of cranking.
Has anyone got any thoughts?

I'm not sure how long you cranked it for, but it could just be that the fuel in the lines has evaporated/drained back to the tank.

I filled the tank yesterday to make sure I wasn't out of fuel, and cranked it over for a long time.
What do you use to spray fuel into the SU's?

Probably not the best way to do it, but I sucked fuel through the pump from one of the lines that was running into one of the carbies.
I then turned over the ignition and it kept flowing through the pump which it wasn't doing the other day. Reconnected the line to the carby and turned it over again and it started.
