The general renovation to our Bounder has slowed but is still ongoing . This time its the engine department that is being a pain!
It is a Ford 460 on a John Deere chassis , carb fed . Now the last time we cranked it up it was after replacing a rogue chassis battery and putting some gas in the tank.
Its been through some cold conditions , after recharging the new battery (been standing as we full time just not travel around the country) it turns over but doesn't fire! Now there's 1/4 of a tank showing on the gauge , full battery charge just no fire.
The Bounder has an externally viewed and accessible fuel filter/electric pump from one of the luggage compartments. The filter is an AC one with a unscrewable canister(metal housing , non see through) theres fuel in the bottom of the canister and the filter itself is wet with fuel , just not as much as I'd imagine. The fuel comes from the tank through this filter then into the electric pump, then onto the engine. The feed splits before the pump for the generator fuel.
The fuel line appears intact hard rubber but intact, also with as much turning over as we have done there's no smell of fuel coming from the carb with the airfilter off.
Have yet to check whether we have spark and if fuel is even getting passed the pump, the electric pump sounds like its working when you turn the key just before you turn the final part.
Any other ideas as to what could be causing this? Before this last spell of us not starting it and the cold spell it cranked 1st time with fuel in and the new battery. Possibly needs more fuel? vapor lock? I have no idea if the coach has a fuel pump also in the tank or on the engine. Anything else engine wise that I haven't thought of?
Sorry for the rambling but just thought I'd ask on here before undoing stuff!
