Re: Won't Idle - Gas Line?
Thanks for the suggestions, all. Still at an impasse.
Here's what I know:
1. the fuel pump works. It runs when hooked to the always hot connector electrical connector nearby. There's no gas swirling in the tank with the pump running so that means the fuel line and connections in the tank connections are correct, right?. And the fuel filter is installed in the correct direction.
2. Reset the throttle position. Nada.
3. Double checked the Jiffy Tite (photo below) installation. I was concerned that the necks of these things are longer than the plastic disconnects they replace so wanted to be sure that the longer neck didn't pinch the curved hoses that go to the engine. Even if I hold the hoses to minimize the bend, after starting just fine and running well under an open throttle, the engine stalls and won't idle when the throttle is released.
I did notice that there is a break at the bottom flange of the neck where the fuel cap sits (photo attached). I may be just scratching for something to explain this idling problem but thought I'd ask: is this a problem?
