My MGB fuel pump is always ticking, is this natural or should they cut off after its primed itself


On most MGB's they slow down and tick about every 4 seconds once the carb float chambers are full.

How do i reprime ?


Close the supply valve to the tank. Open the priming port of the pump, (plug on the upper most part of the casing) pour in water until the pump is filled -up. Close the plug just finger tight. Run the pump. slightly open the plug just to bleed the air with little water. If all water is coming out, the pump motor should cut-off indicating the pump is already primed. Gradually open the supply valve. Pump motor will restart again.

I have a Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas II (1.5hp) Pool pump and a Hayward Navigator sweep. The sweep was working then stopped. Pulled it apart found bad bearings replaced them. Ran sweep again worked at first...


Is the pump leaking water? If you lost the prime or are having trouble priming then there would be an air leak somewhere on the suction side of the pump. Poor suction would interfere with the sweep. One way to ell if the pump or suction line(s) are leaking is to examine the inlet basket once the pump is primed. Any air left in there after a few minutes of operation once primed would indicate a leak in the suction/pump.

My well pump keeps losing its prime. The pump


There may be a slight leak within the suction piping, just enough to allow air to enter as its sits for an extended time. I'd be ceratin the foot valve is good and check over all of my suction pipe connections.
I hope this may have helped,

I have a Flotec FP 4022-10 3/4 hp shallow well pump. It was working fine yesterday afternoon and then in the evening I had no water. I replaced the pressure switch and checked the pressure in the tank...


If heating up, the motor thermal switch is opening to shut down the motor; this is by design. During the brief run time does it pump at all? It sounds as if there may be mechanical issues on the pump itself and the motor (from the extra draw) is heating up and shutting down. I'd look in to the pump to see if anything had failed within it.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
