RE: how do u check if gas is going to the engine
Okay, you need to do some homework on this one, but here's the areas your should check.
- Fuel Pump. Does it operate? Does it pump fuel. If you don't know how to do this, then educate yourself and do some reading.
- Fuel filter. It is clogged? If it is, buy a new one.
- Fuel Strainer (on the carb). It that clogged? If you don't know where the fuel strainer is, go find out. Can't give you all the answers, because there are literally hundreds of different carb mfg's but all have fuel strainers.
- Carb main float chamber. Does this chamber have fuel in it? It should. If it don't check the fuel strainer for soot, clogs.
- Main metering Jet/ idling jet. Is that clogged?
Okay, so if your introducing fuel (whatever) in the carb, I presume you mean the throttle body (venturi), right? After the fuel is spent, the engine dies right? Then you definitely have one of the problems or all of them above described. It is very simple to check everything up to the carb. Granted the pressure carb is a complex, yet very simple unit, if you understand, bernouli's principal. I suggest if you don't or can't overhaul the carb have a professional do it for you. And I don't mean spray carb cleaner down the throttle body either. Have them re-jet, check the float, replace the fuel strainer, in addition to checking the diagraphms.
