Lighter don't light even if it's a nu ignite checked gas flow even spark is gud. And turned up and down lighter gas flow an that didn't work too

Check the gas vents (holes) on the burner, are they clean and clear? Make sure its getting enough air to igniter. Try turning on the gas and light it using a match. If it stays lit the igniter is not working properly, if it does not, either the valve gas vents are clogged or its not getting enough air to keep burning.

Coolant resevior, over flow hose at top near cap, where does it go back into?

There will be one hose that goes from the radiator to the resivor, then one that goes from the resivor, which is an overflow tube, it does not connect to anything.

I just picked up a peacock from dudley perkins Harley. assembled the thing and screwed it into the gas tank. I hooked up the fuel line but there isnt any gas did I do something wrong?

If your petcock is a standard replacement part, you must connect the vacuum line to the backside of the petcock. There should have been a vacuum line on your old petcock unless a previous owner has changed the petcock to a manually operated one. The vacuum line comes off the backside of the carburetor and supplies vacuum to the VOES switch and the petcock.

Still even with the vacuum line connected, you won't get fuel until you turn the engine with the starter. The engine must turn to generate the vacuum to open the petcock. If you have a hand operated vacuum pump, you can use this to check the fuel flow from your petcock.

Good Luck

Bike runs when you pour gas in carburetor but won't pull from the tank, there is gas in the tube that feeds the carbs.

two things. could be that peacock is plugged or there is sometimes a vacumm on the peacock coming from the carbs that sucks the peacock open allowing fuel to flow from the tank. if that hose has a hole in it it will not open the peacock. hope this helps.

Gas tank builds up pressure in the sun

It sounds like the vent in the gas cap is not venting (pluged up).Fuel is like coca cola, when it gets a little shake up it expands.See if you can check the vent in the cap.
