This 460 motor is on a boat. Fuel seems to be getting to the carburetor but not into the engine. Could it be the fuel pump?

Basically anything wrong with an engine is fuel, spark or air. You didn't say if you have spark to the plugs, did you check?

Hi,

I doubt if it is the fuel pump since it is the fuel pump that supplies the carbs and as you posted, fuel seems to be getting into the carb. It would then be necessary for you to check the carbs themselves. Often cleaning is all that is needed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Fuel delivery


It is designed that way. Based on my experience you have a defective ignition starter swich, it is a common fault and the subject of many recalls for this very problem. The switch is at the botton top of the steering column

Starts but bogs out


check that the floats needle/seats are not blocked. check main jets for blockage. I would be checking the carby as carbys left standing for a period of time build up corrosion inside and tend to have blockage problems until cleaned out.

I have a 86 ford f-250 w/ a carbed 460.no fuel to carb. was told i had very low oil pressure.would changing oilpump and assending unit fix my propblem? do i have to pull motor to change oilpump? what...


If you're not getting fuel to the carburetor, check/change your fuel filter, check the fuel pump. And for the oil pressure you can change the oil pressure sending unit to see if thats the problem, for the oil pump the oil pan has to come off, it can be changed without pulling the engine, however you still have to lift the engine up.

FOR A MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP.BACK WHEN I WORKED ON OLDSMOBILE WITH MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP.WHAT I WOULD DO IS REMOVE FUEL LINE AT CARBURETOR AND PLACE A T IN THE PRESSURE HOSE SO THE FUEL LINE CAN BE CONNECTED TO THE CARBURETOR AND THE PRESSURE GAUGE.I WOULD DISABLE SPARK IGNITION THEN CRANK ENGINE OVER TO GET FUEL PRESSURE READING.

Changed out 460 engine. Now fuel delivery problem.


Interesting problem. Not sure what the mechanic has tried - but I recommend that you test YOUR thought about heat on the fuel line. Try some aluminum foil wrapped on the line near and after any heat source... If that fixes it, YOU identified the problem . For perminent fix, just get some heat tape and wrap the line near any heat source and the 460 should be happy.

1988 F-250 460 engine stalls when dribing down the road


On older, carbureted engines, cold stalling (and hard starting) is most often due to an automatic choke that is sticking, misadjusted or broken. Cleaning the choke mechanism with aerosol carburetor cleaner may free up the choke allowing it to work properly again. If the choke housing as an electrical heating element, the element may not be receiving voltage when the key is on, or the element may have burned out (check resistance with an ohmmeter).

Other causes of stalling with a carburetor include an idle speed adjustment screw that is set too low (turn screw to increase idle speed rpm). The engine may stall if the idle fuel mixture screw(s) are not adjusted correctly or the idle mixture port(s) are dirty or clogged with fuel varnish deposits (clean the carburetor and readjust the idle mixture screws for smoothest idle). Stalling can also occur is there are vacuum leaks in the carburetor, under the carburetor (bad base gasket), or any vacuum hose connections to the carburetor or intake manifold
