The problem can be in the vacumn opperated fuel tap and\or the carb float needles, you will need to remove and clean both, after nearly 30 years it may need a fuel tap kit, Check the oil level, sometimes the fuel floods into the sump.

Adjust/clean the float bowl in the carb. Carefull not to bend the float tab when cleaning. Draining the float bowl wont solve the problem, but it might get you started up. If it is not in use for long period of times, add fuel stablizer, turn of the fuel valve, and run the bike untill it stalls out.

Remove the fuel injector and inspect for any damage/wear to the o-ring seals. Their also maybe fuel getting past the valve stem seals. All depends on how many hours on the bike and how hard it has been riden,

My furnace was working last night but when we woke up it was not working. Pilot light was out. Tried to relight but it wouldn't stay lit. Replaced the thermal cuppling. Still nothing

new one is working?Tight? Is it in a fair amount of flame? You'll need a tester ,the thermal coulpling should put out a few hundred millivolts when can check coil on gas valve with ohm meter.I went on a service call recently where the new thermal cupple wasn't tight.

I have a 13 year old top load washer. I need to know how to put on the cuppling. I cannot get the motor out to remove the cuppling.

See the following:

Be sure to remove the two screws holding the clips onto the motor.

1995 ford taurus will not start at times and later starts fine

Sounds like the Fuel Pump, which is located in the Gas Tank, ahead of the rear wheels, basically under the rear door. The gas tank itself is not hard to remove, and you could get a kit available online. It's probably easier to do if you have ramps and back the rear wheels onto those two ramps, you can't do it as easily by just jacking up the car. If you have two hydraulic jacks, that might work as well.

If you buy the part, you want to bring it to a gas station to remove the gas tank, they should be able to do all the work for you in about one hour.
