I wish that were the case. It was full when I tried it. I now have the tank nearly empty after running the genset while camping this weekend. I will probably get it out again in a few days to look at it. I will spec out my gears too to see where they are.
Thanks Fred. Very, very little gas does make it to the pump, but I suspect that it is sucking air too. Gonna have to pull it again and figure it out. I will call transfer flow to see if they have any advice.
We have verified the pump is pushing and not sucking.
Short story quick. I need help.
New used toy hauler. Single gas tank that feeds the genset fine and dandy. Gas pump for toys would not work. Sanded the pump gears and it would turn at least, but no gas coming out. Dropped the gas tank and took off the feed nozzle to the pump. Found that there was a check ball and spring in the aluminum nozzle that was stuck in the closed position. I think it was an emissions thing and I think it was keeping the gas from coming to the pump. Pushed out the check ball and put everything back together. Still no gas.
Filed the gears down again to get them to turn. Sounds like it's pumping fine, but nothing is still coming out. Weird thing is that when the pump is going, and the gas cap is on the tank, then the pump is taking the air out of the tank. You can hear it pop and compress as a vacuum is created in the tank. Still nothing coming out of the pump. Any advice?
My thoughts are that the pickup tube for the gas pump might have came off and maybe the vent tube is clogged? I"m kinda lost till I have time to drop the tank again.
Anyone had this issue too?
