Hi Richard,
If fuel is pouring from Carb it could be that the needle valve has stuck. This would allow fuel to just pour through the carb. Cleaning needle valve seat may work if that is the case
Cheers Stan

My 93 Honda CBR600 TURNS BUT Wont start. it started yesterday but was leaking fuel through the fuel lines so turned it off n took gas tank off n replaced hose clamps n put back together n now it wnt start....

When you put the fuel hoses back and refitted the tank, did you make sure the vacuum tube to the fuel tap was reconnected ?

The fuel tap has a vacuum connection in order that the fuel is automatically cut off when the engine stops - the tap has on-off-reserve manual settings, but this is overridden by the vacuum. So, even if you have set the tap to "on", if the vacuum hose is disconnected/blocked/leaking, no fuel will reach the carbs.

The vacuum hose is about half the diameter of the fuel hoses and connects to the smaller spigot on the tap, and either the number 1 or 2 cylinder vacuum take off point on the carbs.

How to replace a fuel pump 2001 Chevy Tahoe ?????

Take off the gas tank located underneath the drivers side. There should be two brackets holding the fuel tank and you will have to take bolth thoes off but take off the front bracket off first so you can reach the hose lines connected to the fuel pump and disconect thoes (on top side of gas tank). You will have to didisconect the whireing harnes going to the fuel pump if you cant disconect it directly from the fuel pump then follow the wireing harnes to a break. You should be ready to take the fuel tank compleatly out and you will have your fuel pump facing up. There should be a locking washer with a key on it that you will tap with a screw driver counter clock wise and that ring should come off which would be holding the fuel pump down and after that you should be able to take the filter out and replace it.

Sounds like your fuel return line is pluged.disconect it after the regulater and run a temporary line to the tank.if it stops flooding,your return line is kinked or plug.

My bike starts but dies right away what's wrong

Sounds as if you don't have any gas to give it! Turn off the tank fuel tap, remove the carburetor fuel hose, and place the end in a clean can or jar. Turn on the tap again--you should get a small stream of fuel running from the hose. If it just drips, turn off the tap again, unscrew the small bowl under the tap and remove the brass filter screen just above the bowl. Soak it for a while in carburetor cleaner, rinse in fresh cleaner, then put it all back together. Turn on tap again and check for fuel flow. If still weak, turn the tap to 'reserve' position--is the flow still weak? If so, remove the fuel tap bowl and place the can/jar underneath and turn the tap on again. If still slow, open the fuel cap up on top to make sure that tank vacuum is not stopping flow. If nothing helps, you will need to remove the tank, drain the fuel out and remove the fuel tap to clean the two tubes that are sticking out of the top. You may need compressed air to get this accomplished. Good luck!

Fuel flooding cyliders after new gas tank install

If the vehicle is flooding then the pressure regulator is probably bad not registering enough fuel to the system and shutting off the pump in the tank.

Leaking Fuel tap (petcock)

This sounds like a vacuum lock pet ****. 3 position? run, prime,and reserve? If you have it on pri, You will fuel running or not. If set on run, then you will only pass fuel when engine is running, and of course res. when tank is used up. Is this leak at the valve? or from the tank or internally flowing? Tis should also be a gravity feed fuel system, please correct me if I'm wrong. good luck. Long fuel lines are not prefered on gravity feed systems.
