Had problems with my PX not starting, so got down to trying to trace the problem.
Started with fuel, and discovered that no fuel coming into carb.
Kink in fuel pipe, fuel tap, blocked fuel cap.
Blew through fuel cap and it seemed okay. Never had an issue with a fuel tap before, so lifted the tank out to have a look at the pipe. As soon as tank was a bit higher the fuel started to flow.
The only thing I could think of was length of fuel pipe (it was replaced during recent engine rebuild) and it dropping a bit lower than it was meant to below fuel tank?
Has anyone else had issues with fuel getting to carb that was down to length of fuel pipe?
I have shortened the length of the fuel pipe by about 8cm (put tank back in, pulled as much spare into carb as I could) and I am now getting flow into the carb.
Iím a bit worried that if length wasnít necessarily the problem could I be setting myself up for fuel starvation and a seize on my newly rebuilt Pinasco 235?
I would add that the fuel in the tank was quite low when I was having the problem.
