Hold your finger over the end of the exhaust pipe and try to start the engine. If you see fuel running through the fuel lines into the plastic thing that has the air filter attached to it, then it is priming. if the fuel stays in the fuel tank and dont move through the lines, you are sucking air....You need to get to a hobby shop, with all due respect, you are way to new to even understand the help we are trying to give. go to a hobby shop, and ask them for help

What you need just cant be done online

I'm not too new to understand. I just wasn't thinking that's what you meant. I already did that and no gas through the lines. I think it's sucking air on the back where the pipe connects to the header. The rubber piece is like, no good.

Yeah I hope so. I don't think that it's getting enough suction cause of the one that's on there. I'm also going to clean the HSN just in case <_<

replace the fuel line and pressure line also. its not expensive and its just piece of mind.....

if your comfortable with your skills. you could take the whole carb apart and clean the whole thing.

Did I sound rude!? I wasn't trying to sound rude, I was being honest. How can an air leak be detected online, without knowing all the terminology?

Apologies DVX I wasn't trying to be rude

Pull the fuel line off of the HSN on your engine and blow into your exhaust. If fuel comes out you are good there. That means most like likely that your high speed needle is clogged. That is the needle where you hook the fuel line into the engine. The key is to isolate 1 thing at a time.

after you have checked the carb etc check the pipe.
If you have a pipe that has an external nipple (for the pressure line) make sure it is clear. use a piece of wire or something to shove thru. If your pipe does not and uses a hole to poke the line into make sure it is not pushed in too far and hitting the other side of the pipe. The way to fix this for good is to cut the fuel line at a 45 deg so it will never plug if pushed in too far.

good luck
