Creating an access hole for the fuel tank in a Thunderbird 4.6 V8.


i would not recommend that. dropping the tank is better because it gives you the chance to clean things before removal to keep down the amount of contaminants that will drop into the tank. cutting a hole will get you replacing more components if you're not very careful.

Scooter sat for a year; wouldn't start; replaced battery. filled with gas. cleaned spark plug. won't start. Help


after a year sitting idle chances are that the gas inside the carb has degraded and the carb will need cleaning also when you filled the tank did you remove any old fuel? if not the its contaminated with the old gas
give it a full service new feul clean carb clean air filter then it should start

hope this helps

1986 yamaha royale venture...XVZ13DSC running a little rough when idle. Runs fine after up to speed... Backfires on delceleration sometimes... replaced spark plugs, all looked good with consistant tan...


The first thing that I would check is the choke. Is it sticking?? the backfire on decel indicates that it is getting to much fuel.
A new fuel filter is a very good idea but I would look at the old one and see if it is contaminated.
My concern is the fuel tank. If the carbs were done properly they should be fine. If there is a problem it could be rust in the fuel tank that is still polluting the carbs. I have had many bikes that age that require the fuel tank to be removed, cleaned and possibly coated inside.

I would also drain all of the carbs. Each float bowl has a drain screw and can be loosened up slightly to remove the fuel in the carb. Make sure to take a close look at the fuel that comes out to check for water or contamination.

I hope that this helps,
Steve

Need help replacing fuel pump. 1996 ford thunderbird lx. 3.8 can't locate how to remove gas tank.


Disconnect the battery & any fuel lines you can and the same with electrical connectors first of all. Drain the tankwith a siphon pump if 3 gallons or more of fuel is present. It gets heavy to replace back in and dangerous too.. Have the tank supported now & remove the bolts from the tanks mounting straps. Drop the tank down about 6 inches and check for other connection that need to be removed
RFemove the center retainer to remove the fuel pump with the sending unit
I would replace both items since it is an older car and also replace the filter sock to the pump too

1996 triumph thunderbird poor cold starting, motor turns over ok and you can hear it firing but it won't pick up


Sounds like condensation has formed in the tank,SG of water is heavier so it falls to bottom of the tank, this fuel/water mix will not combust properley. Caution , it sould be drained off into a jar to confirm, from the fuel tap(on main and reserve might be an idea.) The carb bowls will need draining as well, as the fuel that there is, is sitting on top of the water. Although fuel and water dont mix, water and alcohol do,dso does fuel and alcohol. put a litre of Methylated Spirit in the tank, that will scavenge the water and resolve the issue. The RON of alcohol is lower , so will burn hotter, and "pink" therefore top up tank with petrol asap. long term the solution is to keep the tank topped up and no condensation will form.
Old fuel will show the same symptoms, especially lead free.

Broken throttle cable


This may be a real hard job. You will have to remove the fuel tank, If your bike has a large air box under the tank you will have to remove it. Now you should be able to see any cables to the carbs and any clips or brackets that hold them in place. You may have to remove the carb's also - reason will be to gain access to the cable ends, they have a ball that fits into a slot on the carb linkage and can be very tight or hard to reach. First things things first, disconnect the battery. Hope this helps you get started.
