Question about 2005 Jaguar XK8
Bike will crank but will not start. i charged the battery, no luck. i removed the fuel hose coming off the the fuel petcock and no fuel came out regardless of the petcock's position.
is this my problem? if so, how do i unclog the petcock? does it need replacing?
The petcock is vacuum operated, there should be a small hose just behind the larger fuel hose thats attached to the petcock. What it does is when the bike is cranking over it sends vacuum though this hose and operates a diaphram in the petcock causing fuel to be released in the fuel line. This is for people that don't turn the fuel off as far as I know. Anyway if you take the small line off and get another piece that fits there and turn the petcock on and **** on the small hose it should send fuel out the bigger fuel hose if it works correctly.
Hope this helps
