    gpr fuel lines running dry help!!

    well after pulling the motor when it blew i noticed the fuel line going to the carbs had 0 fuel in it after sitting for a little over a week. is that normal? i did notice that the line was saturated with fuel when i pulled the plastic cover off but the line has no holes or leak... the only thing i noticed was where the line goes to the fuel pump it was not put on with any type of clamp or zip tie and the nipple coming off of the fuel pump is able to spin.... any help would be appreciated...

    Welcome to the forum.

    First off, you need to find out 'why' the motor let go. Cleaning the carbs alone will not fix them if they need a rebuild. How many hours on it? What engine damage was done, any pics? So the carbs were cleaned BEFORE the engine went South?

    If the fitting is spinning screw it out and put a little thread tape on it and put it back in tight. you need to use some zip ties or small clamps on the lines. zip ties work fine.

    first cylinder basically destroyed itself. took out a chunk of the piston, possible lean condition, and yes they were cleaned before because it wouldnt go over 5000 rpms. dirty filters. she ran like a top up untill its little self destruction. 140 hours on it. and as a little more info this is a sbt reman motor too that only got about 10 hours on it before the front cylinder went.

    You were not running on reserve were you? See my warning about that a few days ago.
