If my T sits for a month or so, I find it real hard to start. I almost always have to use some ether and a lot of cranking to get running. Have had coils rebuild earlier by Ron. It acts like it doesn't get gas even if I have the tank fairly full. If I could find a 6 volt fuel pump would that help or what would you all suggest? At this point everything is bone stock.
I don't think a fuel pump would help. First check fuel flow. Is everything clear from the sediment bowl? If you open the drain on the carb, does fuel flow? Are you sure the needle valve hasn't stuck?
Better check the function of your choke butterfly - sounds as though you're not getting a good prime.
A fuel pump on a T is about as useful as a water pump. There's something wrong. Diagnose it and repair the problem to get the best results.
Steve's suggestion is a good one. I'd check that out and for that matter the entire fuel system.
You said "If my T sits for a month or so" if you leave a modern fuel in the tank for that long (Especially open systems) the alcohol in the fuel will condense the moisture in the fuel which will sink to the bottom so that when you try to prime the car you may be getting a big gulp of moisture that wont burn till you get it all out. A tip... when you know your car will sit turn the fuel off and allow the carburetor to run dry.Then when you go to start the car open the drain on the sediment bulb and let a little out into a coffee can or some suitable container. If moisture is the culprit this will help! Sorry for the long response
If you let it for a month between runs shut the gas off and run the carb empty if you aren't going to run it for a while.
Next time your T sits for a month or so pull the plug and give it a couple of Squirts of oil in each cylinder before trying to start your T. Mine acted just like your after sitting all winter. I checked the fuel flow to the carburetor, taped on the carburetor bowl, no amount of choking help. I pulled the plugs and found them dry as can be, it wasn't sucking any gas up to the cylinders. I dribbled a little gas into the cylinders and it fired and stalled, hit the starter and the same thing fire and die. After about 6 attempts it ran like it should. My thoughts are dry cylinders are the cause.
Thanks for responses! I will try some of the suggestions.
