Accelerator Pump check valve
Posted March 16, 2008 - 03:42 PM
When I put it back together I checked to see if the accelerator pump was working. The fuel circuit from the bowl to the diaphram is not allowing fuel to get to the accelerator pump.
I have a feeling it is the check valve (ball and spring?) that are in the float bowl to prevent fuel from being pushed back into the bowl. Is it manufactured into the bowl or is it removeable. I am sure that it is clogged. I tried squirting carb cleaner into it but still no dice.
How can the fuel intake circuit to the accelerator pump be cleaned?

Are you positive the AP diaphragm is in good condition?

I tried to unstick the check valve from the float bowl side but I think the circuit does a 90 degree turn befor it gets to the check ball. I did not see where I can get to the check ball.
