Not getting gas to carb

It could be. Since you have a carburetor, you must have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine? Only some imports with carburetors had an electrical pump.

If your filter is in the line just before the carburetor, take the line off at the filter, then crank the engine over to see if the pump is working. Mechanical fuel pumps will pump gas when the engine is cranking or running. Use a jar or can to catch the gas. If pump is working, fuel will come out in small spurts. It's not under high pressure- carbs don't need high pressure. If no gas comes out of the line, you probably need a new fuel pump. If the pump is working, it could be the filter, but could also be the needle valve and seat at the carb's fuel inlet. Sometimes they get stuck closed and won't let gas into the carburetor.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

Huskvarna Riding Lawn mower will not start

Stating the obvious when the fuel line is off the carb and the engine is cranked there should be fuel coming from the hose, if not the pump is not working, there is normally three conections on the pump, fuel in, fuel out, and pulse from the engine, this hose takes a pulse from the rise and fall of the piston in the cylinder, make sure the hoses are connected corectly and tight, if there is still no fuel check the inline fuel filter ( if fitted ) is not blocked, if all appears ok, then it can only be a faulty pump.

I have a 94 plymouth voyager i had to replace the waterpump and fuel pump now it wont start it cranks over but wont start any ideas ??

Hi phcr7566...

Disconnect your fuel line from your carburator and put a container to catch the fuel as you crank your engine...
You are doing this to make sure you are getting fuel to the carb from the new fuel pump you installed...because you might be "air bound"...not allowing the fuel pump to pump fuel to the carb.If your getting fuel to the carb, them make sure the float in the carb is not stuck and not allowing any fuel to get to the engine.

Need to get fuel to 85 chevy cube van, i replace the fuel pum and smog pump,getting no gas to carbuerator.

You have two filters in the system. One is in the fuel inlet on the carburetor, the other is the "sock" inside the tank. If either is plugged, no fuel will flow. Also examine the fuel line. Unlike an injected system, a small hole in a line often won't leak a lot because the pump pulls fuel. A hole will allow air to be pulled in instead of squirting out fuel. First, remove the line from the carb and attach it to a hose and crank the engine. After cranking, you should have about a pint or fuel in the catch container. If not, check line and tank filter. If you have fuel, check carb filter. On Chevy engines there is a rod inside the engine that operates the pump. You did make sure that the rod was up and the pump arm is actually being activated by it?

Have a chevy malibu that would not start up, it trys to but no firer maybe the fuel pump might be bad.

basics: spark,fuel,air,compression make an engine run.does it have spark? take a plug out put the wire back on it, ground the body of the plug to metal on engine. have someone crank it over, spark?y-n?yes ok move on to fuel. no, check for spark at the distributor cap.eliminate possible problems one by one.check for fuel flow. take air cleaner off the carb.if carbureated. pump throttle while looking down carb. throat.fuel should squirt into carb below choke plate.{hold it open while looking}fuel? y-n? no: check for fuel flow fron gas line into carb. remove fuel line andcatch fuel from the line in a container while helper cranks fuel, probably bad fuel pump.etc. good luck

1976 gmc 350 - no fuel getting to carb, I disconected the fuel line from the carb & cranked - nothing came out but I could heaar the pump working and feel some air being blown out - yes there is fuel...

yes it is probably the pump or a problem in one of the fuel lines but i would bet more on the fuel pump or suction line into the tank. If you can take the line off going to the tank put it in a jug of gas and see if the pump will pump it to the carb or the engine will run.

Won't start

Check for fuel pressure at carb by placing a pressure gauge between the carb and fuel line . Check fuel delivery by putting a long hose connected to fuel line at carb and cranking. If you have pressure below 4lbs or if you get poor delivery cranking (with hose in a can or jar to measure amount) than you have either a bad pump or filter. If engine starts when you pour a small amount of fuel into it, and delivery and pressure was good, then there is a carb problem. When working on older vehicles, always make sure that fuel line from tank is not rusted and leaking.
