Ive got an 85 22r.

Ran PERFECT since my rebuild, until I ran it to empty like an idiot because i didnt rehook up the fuel guage thingie.

So, I ran it DRY. Long story short, has run perfectly, ran it dry... saw crap in the fuel filter, replaced it AND the pump on the block. Got it running strong again, tested the new suspension blah blah blah and drove it for about 30 mins, parked it, called it good. Two weeks later.... go do some work, and BAM...no fuel is getting to the engine. What gives? I dont wat to kill my starter just to get gas to flow.

T T T.

I'm guessing it sucked up debris that I missed. I installed the pump per instructions (with a NEW spacer) and installed the fuel lines accordingly, which I marked so I know they are right.

Whats the best way to flush the lines?

Sooo... I ending up just pouring some gas directly into the carb to see if it would even run.... started right up and ran all day......

What gives? Im wondering if this was the same problem as earlier.
