Could the exhaust gasket being torn be the reason why fuel isn't flowing?

To check and see that your glow plug is good pull it out and stick it in the igniter and you should see it glow red, if it does not glow red either the igniter is dead or the glow plug is bad.

I still have not seen on here that you have pulled the fuel line off of the carb and spun the engine over to see if you get fuel coming out of the fuel line when you spin it over.

Check the plug first and then pull the fuel line off of the carb and spin it over with the glow plug in and see if you get fuel coming out of the fuel line.

I have moved the fuel fitting on the carb once and the aluminum squash washers that are on both sides of the fitting that the fuel line goes on did not seat properly when I tightened it back down and made me think that I had a bad front bearing when it was only fuel squirting by those two aluminum gaskets.


Before you think that you have a bad bearing take some fuel line and hook it up to the carb and blow into the fuel line with your mouth and then put some soapy water aroung the carb fittings and screw adjustments and the bearing to see if you get any bubbles.

Hope this helps.

Yes, if it is ripped bad enough. That is why I want you to check for fuel coming out of the fuel line at the carb when you spin it over. If you get fuel coming out of the fuel line then that should be good enough to start the engine and we need to look for something else wrong.

The glow plug that's in it is good. I will try everything else you said later on today and tell you what happens.

If it is something in the fuel line or a problem with the tank a new engine will not change anything. You should still check this stuff out. Yes it could be the engine also but if it still has some compression then it should still start.

If you take it to your local hobby shop they might be able to help you. Good luck.

Default Fuel Line

Before you buy a new engine check and see if the nipple on your pipe is clogged, that can be your problem also?

Okay I finally got the enine running and drawing fuel on it's own now. I got a new exhaust gasket and took out the carb. and cleaned it and put it back in and now it works. I set all the needles back to factory settings. But what temp should I keep the engine at?

Around 220 deg. F.

If your not racing, the engine will last a lot longer running in the low 200's
