Thats a pretty good idea right there ^

Hell that takes all the fun outta turning the pump on, running around to watch and see if it's ok or spilling into the motor then running back to shut the pump off, then having to drain the oil because you filled the motor full of fuel!! Been there done that several times! ops:

Sometimes it's just easier to sit back and think for 2 minutes about what you're doing before you start.


Good simple idea.

No doubt. It is funny how we get caught up on a project & do not take the time to think about these simple things!!! That cost me 88.00 just by flicking the pump on one time. I appreciate all your feedback. I like what Tod said too... just got too excited & did not think carefully.

If you are going to the track by yourself why not put a momentary switch for the fuel pump on the fire wall that way you can prime the carb while looking at the carb.

Good idea, nice & simple. I did fix it & it holds now. There was some very small rubber debris in there.

Wabbit: me too brutha. Man that girl did some crazy stuff... more high maintenance than my car too. LOL!!!!
