There's nearly half a tank....Dangerously. I hated to put the meter on the plug terminals............. nearly 2 feet away from the open tank. Gas is NO FUN.
It sounds like the solenoid or electric switch at the throttle is failing..
Wish I had a factory spec on the windings of the pump motor.... as I mentioned. it reads approx. 4.9 ohms.......no load. maybe I'll wind up supplying 12 volts to see if the pump operates out of the tank. I just was'nt sure about supplying the whole 12v. I dont have a varible DC power supply anymore to start it lower......say at around 5volts and bring it up.
Hell. If the it pumps solo with 12 volts on it......I'm going for the solenoid. Just a hunch....cuz it 'sounds' like it's trying to do it's job and is restricted some how ........or just worn out. UM..Aight.. Looking forword to your post. thanks so much
I hooked mine up straight 12 volts straight out of the tank, I hadnt thought about it being maybe 9.372 volts or some crazy stuff lol,
I ordered another fuel pump for mine so it should be here in a couple days,
I kinda miss all the mechanical dinosuars I grew up working on lol
and ya know what suprised me is when I dropped the tank and pulled the pump the wires were not sealed like I thought they would be, there are just bare terminal conectors in the tank...both to the pump and the sending unit
Yessir. Same here with the non-insulated pump and sender connects. UM. I guess it's gas FUMES that ignite. I'll test the pump with a battery and go from there.. Gonna search for a diagram that has a picture close enough to name the throttle solenoid or prestart control device.??something. $100. bucks for this pump so I will be 100% sure.FIRST.laters
yeah them pumps are kinda pricy, I trouble shot mine and am fairly certain the pump is bad, I found one for 80 bucks and most others I gound were like 250, its a far shot from them 18.00 mechanicals you could work out in a couple hours lol
