Carborator fuel drain

Posted by Paul Jablonski on


1 Answer


Have you ever seen a fuel drain on anything
but power equipment, small engines

I assume you have & are looking at a tripower
carb set up

Why would you need a drain?

I was around & had brand new 65 vette,327/365 carb

I never bought the 1964 GTO, because I wanted
the HI Pro 421 & it only went to the nascar & professional
super stock drag teams.

You will need what is called an oil vacuum pump. They are not very expensive (around $20-$30 US) & are usually available at your local auto parts outlet. They are basically an oversized syringe with a flexible rubber or plastic tube instead of a solid steel probe & will usually hold about a metric litre. Hand operated. Use this to withdraw as much oil as you can from the Diff, it is impossible to get every drop. You will also find it handy to refill the diff, but flush it out first with kero or diesel. I also recommend draining all you can in one step, then waiting 1/2 an hour to 45mins and doing it again to get the last bit.

I need to know where the carborator is on 1998 Saturn SL, with a picture

A 1998 Saturn will not have a carborator as it is fuel injected sorry.

1087 ford do both tank have inside fuel pump

I had one of these trucks and the pump was mechanical on the side of the engine. If it has fuel injection and in tank fuel pumps then there is one in each tank. Mine was a 1986 carborated. Look under the trucks frame some have a single big silver pump attahed to the frame rail in the early years and this may be one of them. In that case there is a soleniod that just switches fuel flow from one tank to the other. When this soleniod goes bad it will drain one tank and overfill the other tank.

Carborator will not hold a prime

Sounds like the needle valve and seat are leaking in both. The needle valve shuts off the fuel and holds it in the float reservoir. If the valve does not seat properly it allows the fuel to drain out overnight. You may need to overhaul the carburetors. You also may have a pin hole in the float. You can check that when you open it up.

87 cadillac has starting problem after sitting for a period of time, or when parked on slight incline. Seems like fuel drains back into tank. Have to pump pedal for several minutes, some times for 20 +...

I believe that car still had the modified version of the Quadrajet carb on it. They are noted for having fuel bowl bottom plug leaks. In that case, the fuel is not going into the tank, but draining into the intake manifold. To fix that, the carb needs to be removed and a good fuel proof epoxy needs to be put over the plugs to seal them off.
It's been a while and I cannot remember if the base plate needs to be removed to do this but I don't think so.

Fuel not getting to carborator.

The filter is external. Located on the passenger side frame rail, about 4-5 ft from the tank. round, metal (or if previously replaced-- might be plastic). Are you sure you have a carb? 1988 models were throttle body type fuel injection. If it is TBI, you may not be getting power to the internal fuel pump. Are you seeing a fault code (the check engine light flashing)?
