    Gas not getting to the carb

    To start...i tried to prime it but the gas wasn't moving thru the fuel line so i disconnected the fuel line from the carb then primed it again and gas started flowing. I cleaned the fuel line and connected it back. Still not getting to the carb. I really think its the carb. I want to clean the carb. Any thoughts or suggestions would really help.

    It's either a blocking or pushing problem. Clean the carb and then verify that the rest of the system is air-tight.

    Took it to my lhs today and come to find out the fuel intake was clogged up with dirt. They primed it all out. On the road again.

    See if your piston is a lined. some times the piston will hit the ring and mess up the suction.

    I guess there's things going on inside these engines that the rest of us don't know about.

    The piston on the 3.3 is unlined.

    Well actually debris was clogging in the high speed needle of the carb. I somehow cross threaded the threads inside the carb which caused a air leak so therefore the gas wasn't flowing. I swapped the old carb for a brand new one and now its crazy fast.
