  • Fuel Filter Cartridge

    on my 1966, with the 390 cu in, I changer the fuel filter cartridge, now not getting gas to carb. Does the fuel filter canister need to be full of gas when it is re-installed ?

    It helps to prime the fuel pump. You can take the line that goes to the carburetor off and pour gas down it to prime the pump.

      Fuel Filter

      Still having a problem getting fuel to carb. Engine would start and run. I decided to change the fuel filter cartridge. Removed the canister and cleaned it. Replaced the cartridge / gasket and reassembled . Cranking engine, with remote button off solinoid, no key on, can't get gas ! Poured gas down fuel line to fill pump, still won't pump.
      What is my next step ?

        My suggestion is to remove the line from the fuel pump to the tank and connect a line from the fuel pump to a gas can. If it feeds gas from the can then the pump is ok and you may have a blockage in the fuel pickup screen or tube on the sender unit. If it doesn't draw gas from the can then your pump is probably shot.

          If I remove the hose from the fuel pump inlet, should I feel suction when the engine is cranking ?

            If it's working correctly, yes.
