TR4/4A Mechanical fuel pump glass bowl level?


Jedi Knight

The fuel bowl on the fuel pump must be full with the engine running. Check it with the engine running. Fuel drops in from the top and goes out from the top as well. However a in line filter will often be 1/4 to 1/2 full even while the engine is running.
