Fuel Problem
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:21:31 PM »
When my scooter's carb is connected to the fuel filter, it won't start. When I disconnect the fuel line from the carb, it starts immediately and runs on the fuel in the carburetor. Why would that be? Could it be the vacuum fuel petcock?

Quite possibly yes. But it could also be the fuel filter ( plugged up ).
By pass the fuel filter and see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't then I would suspect the vacuum petcock or vacuum line from the carburetor to the petcock.
