SOURCE: running rough. no gas going to front plug.

If your plug is dry, then there is no fuel. This can happen for two reasons: No compression - be sure to get a compression tester and ensure that there is enough compression produced by the engine to enable the engine to run. More than likely, though, there is no fuel getting to the engine. When cleaning carburetors, it is important that you use a chemical dip. Spraying carb cleaner through it is not enough. Be sure to disassemble completely: fuel float and its needle and seat, all jets, all emulsion tubes, all air cut off systems and accelerator pumps, all enrichment circuits (choke), vaccum slide and diaphragm, all air jets, and last but not least - the idle air/fuel screw. If this is the first time the carb has been taken apart you have to drill the cap to get to the screw. once everything is apart, soak all metal parts in the Berryman or equivalent chemical dip solution for at least several hours. After, run hot water, as hot as you can stand over all dipped components and blow out with compressed air. reassemble and enjoy.

SOURCE: took tank out, disassembled fuel pump, cleaned out

A service manual is a valuable tool with an aging bike. I suggest the dealer/mfr. or Clymer books. In the meantime, go to the library reference section...646 stacks should have what you need.

SOURCE: took gas lines off of


I have just sent you a comment on a different thread. I see that you posted the same question on separate thread. I am also posting here as I do not know if you are following both thread. Better to keep the problem on a single thread. Below my previous comment:


There is no "diagram" showing the whole routing of fuel lines in the bike. You need to use different diagrams in Fuel System section of the service manual. Fuel system section starts at page 15 in service manual, but what you really need starts at page 40. I have posted fuel service manual at the end of comment.

There is one forum where users discussed the routing. One user has colored the diagram from service manual to indicate lines routing. Here the diagram:


Here the forum, I quote:

"The red and yellow are the fuel lines that go to the petcock. The green one you left unmarked also goes to the petcock. The line with a question mark is a vacuum line that connects to a part in front of the battery along with the larger lines to the cylinders."

Here the service manual in PDF format.

Is it difficult to replace fuel pump for a 2000 astro van

it should not be to difficult to replace. you will probably need to drop the gas tank down some and try to remove the fuel lines and wires from the pump be careful the fuel lines could be brittle and easy to break you will also need to make sure noting else is connected to the gas tank before you take it out. once the tank is out all you half to do is remove the old pump it is likely just held in by a snap ring and put the new pump in than put the fuel tank back up into the van and reconnect everything you took off. it is much easier to take the fuel tank out if it is empty. also I usually use a floor jack to hold the fuel tank when I am taking things off and putting things on.

Gas tank

Have a good look at the tank and where it should go, you should be able to work it out. It is a harley after all, the mechanics haven't been changed much since they started making them. They were designed to be easy to fix and build so that they could be fixed by novices with only the basic tools. This makes them ideal for modification. Yours may have been modified and as such it would be difficult to give a step by step answer.

Was leaking gas took tank out fixed the leak put back in and now no gas is getting to carb

I have done this. You might have crossed the fuel lines. Check them. I know its a pain in the **** but it;'s worth checking apparently you forgot or overlooked something or crossed lines.

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).

line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb

Replace the fuel filter. Sounds like you have the primer lines hooked up backwards.

I can't put gas in tank

There is a black box behind the drivers side rear wheel. It has 2 bolts that hold it on. It will have lines running from the gas tank to this box. Take this box off. There is a electrical connection along with a vent line from the tank on a T that will unplug from this box. Take the T and look inside the vent part of it. There is a plunger that gets stuck. I took pb blaster and squarted inside. Then I used a small screw driver and worked it back and forth till it did not stick any more. reassembled it and it worked fine. it took a couple of fill ups before the light on the dash went out by itself.

After putting gasoline in my car

Raise the car w/ a jack and place on safety stands after your next fill up. Look at gas tank, vent hoses, fill hose, fuel lines , something is definitely leaking. It could be anything from rusty deteriorating gas tank, or fuel lines, to a loose connection of the fill pipe, rotted, split vent line, etc. Check this out asap as this sounds like a serious safety concern, you don't want to be driving a fire bomb
